Online Site Support Notebook: Telling Legislators
We would appreciate it if you would inform your local, state and national legislators that the library and the community are participants in a major National Endowment for the Humanities and Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission project. Invite them to the opening reception or to other programs which you are sponsoring; invite them to speak or introduce speakers. This is important for the continued funding of cultural programs.
Also urge your patrons to contact their legislators about library programs they value. A previous ALA exhibition host distributes a flyer that says:
If you enjoyed the program this afternoon, please feel free to write to any or all of the following to express your appreciation. Paper and envelopes are available as you leave and there will be stamps for sale if you wish to write immediately. Thank you in advance for supporting your library and its programs.
A list of local, state and federal elected legislators and their addresses and fax numbers followed the request.
