Ask Your Senators to Sign LSTA Letter

Appropriations season has arrived in Washington DC and library funding is on the table. Please call your U.S. Senators by April 24 and ask them to sign a “Dear Colleague” letter in support of funding for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). LSTA is crucial for libraries because:

  • LSTA is the primary source of funding for libraries in the federal budget
  • LSTA helps many public libraries provide services to users that include, but are not limited to: job searches, résumé building help, digital literacy workshops, access to e-government services, etc.

To sign the LSTA letter, your senators can contact the office of Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) or Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME).

Please use our calling tool to make the call today. Upon entering your information you will

  • receive a call,
  • hear talking points,
  • and be directly connected to the DC office of one of your U.S. Senators.
  • To call your other senator, simply use the call form again
