Please tell Congress to invest in New Jersey libraries…

The federal budget process is underway and we NEED your help! The President has proposed the elimination of two grant programs crucial to libraries and the services we provide: the Library Service and Technology Act (LSTA) and Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL).

Please ask your Congressional Representative to maintain this small but vital investment in our libraries!
