Thank You Library Advocates!

MHLS would like to thank all library advocates who made the time to help with state-level advocacy efforts last week! From attending meetings with legislators, to increasing the profile of libraries advocacy goals through social media, to making phone calls to connect with advisors to legislators – the MHLS library community has been doing a great job!

Many MHLS area legislators have signed on to budget letters that endorse the library community’s budget goals:

  • $123.1 million for library aid
  • $45 million for State Aid for Library Construction

Advocacy outreach will continue through the budget season, which wraps up on April 1st, and the legislative season, which wraps up mid-June. Stay tuned for specific calls of action that will be time sensitive!
