AND this affects every library in every state in some way. SAVE IMLS!
In response, library supporters have begun an online petition of support. They would like to collect 100,000 signatures by May 3. You can find the petition at https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/release-statement-funding-libraries-and-museums-core-federal-responsibility/6g1tTXHv. If you don't have an account, you will have to create one in order to sign.
