Thank You FLA and Library Day Supporters

Thank you to the Florida Library Association (FLA) for organizing Library Day at the Capitol yesterday, and keeping all of us informed on funding levels for State Aid to Libraries ($21.3 Million currently allocated in the House) and the Multitype Library Cooperatives (MLCs) - ($1.2 Million currently allocated in the House.) Let's all hope the Senate will match this early in the Legislative process.
Libraries change lives, all of us that work/volunteer/advocate for library see this impact every day in the people that we meet and interact with. It was great to see the many people that showed up yesterday at the Capitol wearing the " I Support Libraries" buttons that FLA gave out. I hope at the end of the session to have people join me at the Capitol in holding Thank You Signs for our Represenatives.
