REMINDER: This is the time of year to send requests for funding for local, special projects to state and federal legislators. Projects at member libraries that have been funded through this avenue in the past have included renovation projects, technology purchases, and special collection investments. There are no stated guidelines, no official application form, no official deadline for state requests – this is just a letter to your legislator outlining your needs. Visit MHLS’s Advocacy Page for your state and federal legislators’ contact information.
