As Congress continues to work on appropriation bills for FY 2012, we can make sure they keep school libraries in mind. The Senate Appropriations Committee voted out of committee a bill that included $30 million for literacy, at least half of which must go to school libraries. But the fight for this money is not over.

 

In order to keep support for school libraries going, a Twitter Bomb is planned for Thursday, Dec. 8, at 3pm EST.  Please tweet the following message at both of your senators and your representative. Below is an example of the tweet directed at Rep. Denny Rehberg of Montana:

@DennyRehberg Keep $30 mil for #literacy and school #libraries in this year's federal funding!

                                                                                                                                                    TLA is set to twitter in support of school libraries. We hope all the tweeting librarians in Tennessee can participate.
