Please keep your letters to Representatives coming!

 

The Whitehouse has confirmed that IMLS and LSTA would be eliminated if the president’s proposed FY 2020 budget is approved:

https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/msar-fy2020.pdf .  Below, please find IMLS Director Dr. Kathryn K. Matthew’s statement on this issue.

 

Thanks to those who have already submitted letters or have promised to do so. The deadline is March 20.

 

  • Share your letter with ALA so we can amplify your message. ALA will share these letters with the appropriate Congressional staff in Washington and use these letters in social media outreach to Members of Congress. Please upload a copy of your letter to ALA at:

https://airtable.com/shrfK0kpex6OtKAJ5

 

  • Urge allies and advocates in your state to contact their Representative and ask them to sign these two letters. The more calls from their home state and district, the more likely it is that a Member of Congress will sign the letters. Urge associates to participate by signing up for our engagement tool at https://cqrcengage.com/ala/?0

 

Please contact me with any questions.

 

Thank you,

Marci

AzLA 2019 Conference - Call for Proposals

Posted By Danielle Angerbauer, Tuesday, March 5, 2019

 

Conference Theme: Libraries = Strong, Sustainable Communities


What are you doing at your library to actively collaborate and advocate for your school, community, campus or organization to build a sustainable future?


The Arizona Library Association invites all library and information professionals to submit program proposals for the 2019 AzLA Annual Conference


When: November 7-8th, 2019*

Where: Tucson Convention Center, Tucson, Arizona

Submission Deadline: May 17, 2019

 

* AzLA will also be hosting a half-day of workshops at the Flowing Wells Library in Tucson on Saturday, November 9th, geared toward school and public librarians.

This is our time. Libraries hold a key to the health and sustainability of our communities. The path to sustainability is different for every community – but the common elements are - environmental quality, economic vitality and social equity. In an era filled with political and social strife, Arizona libraries play an invaluable role in providing resources and expertise that can foster community engagement and transform lives through education and lifelong learning.  Libraries have the power to provide access to information so families can reach their goals, secure jobs, increase income, maintain health, and even learn about climate change and its impact on food and energy.

Libraries practice sustainability when they:

  • play a role in wider community conversations about resiliency, climate change and a sustainable future,

  • consider the economic, environmental and socially equitable viability of their own choices,

  • proactively apply sustainable thinking in the areas of their facilities, operations, policy, technology, programming, partnerships and library school curricula.

Take the next step: Share what you are doing at your library to actively collaborate and advocate for your school, community, campus, or organization to build a sustainable future.

Send us your program proposal today!


For information about the submission form, program tracks, presentation requirements and conference visit:


AzLA 2019 Annual Conference Program Proposals



Online registration for the conference will open in August 2019. Contact the AzLA Secretary for general questions or if you need assistance with your username and password. The telephone number is (602) 614-2841 or send an email to admin@azla.org.
