Save our Libraries!

Libraries are under attack in Canada, too.

As Donald Trump works to kill of the U.S. Postal Service, an institution enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, so short-sighted budgeteers seem to be doing their best to Grover Norquist our public libraries, another centuries-old institution. Don't let that happen!

This alert is from Citizen Action:

The La Crosse library system is suffering.  

The City of La Crosse has slashed their budget.  We can take action RIGHT NOW to restore funding but we have to move quick.

Libraries across the Coulee Region are so important. They offer so much more than books. They are internet access for the underserved. They are a meeting place. They are a resource for the unemployed looking for work.  Libraries serve everyone in the Coulee Region.

The library is collecting statements from the public in support of restoring the library's funding.  Use this link to submit a statement in support of La Crosse's library. It only take a minute and it can have a huge impact. 

The deadline for comments to be submitted is July 31st so we only have a small window.  Please take a moment RIGHT NOW to let the City of La Crosse know that libraries are an essential service.

Thank you in advance for helping to protect La Crosse's libraries!
