President’s budget requests reduction to IMLS funding

President Obama released his 2012 budget request today, requesting $194 million for assistance to libraries to be administered by the Institute of Museum and Libraries Services (IMLS). This request is approximately $20 million below the current funding level.

Like last year, the president also chose to consolidate the Improving Literacy Through School Libraries program with several other literacy programs.

The Washington Office is analyzing the president’s budget and will post additional information on the District Dispatch.
