New Business Group Lobbies Congress to Save Library Funding

Posted by Credo on 5/22/17 3:17 PM

Dozens of information, software, and publishing companies have joined together to form CCLI, the Corporate Committee for Library Investment. With the federal government only funded through September, members of Congress are now working toward the Fiscal year 2018 budget, and early signs indicate there could be massive cuts to libraries. The budget President Donald Trump proposed eliminates nearly all federal funding for libraries and the Institute of Museum and library Services. At stake are $186.6M in funding for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and $27M for the Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) program in FY 2018.
