Strong libraries help Americans become better informed, more effective citizens, but libraries can only thrive with support from their communities, including local, state, and federal government bodies.  If libraries don't have strong support - and especially if their funding is cut -  they must reduce the level of services, and the community loses an essential resource.
        Do your elected officials support funding for libraries? provides tools to help you locate your elected officials and  find out how they stand on issues related to libraries.
       Contact your officials and tell them:  I care about my library, and I vote!
