President Obama continues to show that he understands the value of libraries. Today, President Obama sent Congress an outline of his $3.6 trillion FY 2010 budget. In the budget outline, the president states, “To give our children a fair shot to thrive in a global, information-age economy, we will equip thousand of schools, community colleges and universities with 21st Century classrooms, labs and libraries.”
The Administration is expected to release specific program allocations in April.
