Had a weird teary moment today because I love the library and I love books and life feels so fast and all over the place and everything is out of my control, which is a good thing really but it’s hard to see that right now. Then I remembered that control doesn’t really exist so, whatever

Hey, so did you know that librarians tend to run liberal?

And that they’re really against censorship?

And that nearly all libraries have policies that prohibit people from harassing others inside?

And that nearly all libraries have free wifi and desktop computers that erase history when you’re done using them?

And that librarians are totally chill with you hanging out all day? (provided you don’t spill things on the books)

And that libraries often have huge offerings of dvds which you can watch on your laptop in the library?

And that libraries tend to have lots of resources for folks who find themselves in distress?


What I’m saying is, if shit hits the fan, go to the library, you’re welcome here.

President’s budget proposal to eliminate federal library funding

Originally posted by icicesttouslesjoursmercredi

Do we need to tell you we aren’t thrilled about the President’s budget? Didn’t think so.

This is just the first of many calls to action we’ll be posting, but for now here’s what you can do:

  1. Call your Members of Congress and ask them to publicly oppose wiping out IMLS, and ask them to commit to fighting for federal library funding.
  2. Share your library’s IMLS story using the #SaveIMLS tag - tell us how IMLS funding supports your local community.
  3. Sign up to receive our Action Alerts - we will let you know when and how to take action, and send you talking points and background information.

If you need some background information about IMLS or the appropriations process, you can check out this IMLS database or our most recent blog post on the subject of LSTA and IAL..

So my public library is so extra lmao. There’s a pride exhibit with all these photos of lgbtq+ people and inspiring quotes which is super rad right?

but wait one sec let’s get a little bit closer…
