Today just wasn’t meant to be a good day for me. Yesterday was a beautiful Fat Tuesday and I enjoyed the four hours I spent in the thick of all things Mardi Gras. I was worn out by 5 in the afternoon and slept until it was time to get ready for work this morning. I always check the news as soon as I clock in and this morning I was appalled by the first article I read. It appears that Congress thinks it would be a good idea to cut funding to the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). No, Congress. This is a terrible idea! The citizens of this country deserve access to the services provided by libraries across the nation. I spend a lot of my free time in the library. I’m a single parent that can’t afford to buy all of the books that I want to read. I definitely don’t trust all of the information on the internet. Yes, I still conduct research at the library. I’m a nerd.
So, I am asking everyone that cares to please ask Congress to avoid making this huge mistake. Click on the link below and fill in the blanks. It’s super easy. Long live the library!
