Advocacy Opportunity: Tell Your Legislator Why You Love Your Library!

During the month of March, LARL is asking its loyal customers to advocate for libraries by sending a letter or email – or making a phone call to your local legislator.

See a list of local legislators here:

If you contact your legislator, please thank them for their service and for supporting local libraries and ask them to help us move forward with an Increase for Basic Funding for Library Systems (HF1382/SF1033).  This would increase funding from $13.57 million to $16.57 million annually with a corresponding formula change to provide stable funding for all regional public library systems across the state.

If you can give an example of how your local library has helped you as an individual, your customers, or your community, please share it with your legislator.
