President Trump's budget proposal for FY2018 eliminates all funding for the Institute of Museum of Library Services (IMLS), the primary source of federal funding for libraries.
Libraries leverage the funds they receive through their states into an incredible range of services benefiting all Americans to produce what could well be the highest economic and social "ROI" in the entire federal budget
It’s time for library supporters to make our priorities clear to Congress—preserve funding for IMLS. Help us spread the word, and please call your members of Congress. Ask them to publicly oppose wiping out IMLS and commit to fighting for federal library funding.
