The deadline has been extended until Thursday (April 25) COB for Senators to sign on to two Dear Colleague Letters.  One letter supports funding for the Library Service and Technology Act (LSTA), and the other supports funding for the  Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL).   If your United States Senator’s name is not on this list please call NOW and encourage him or her to sign this important letter.  To contact your U.S. Senator, please got to ALA’s Legislative Action Center (LAC).
