See below to find out how your elected officials have been graded in their efforts to support libraries:
National Library Advocacy Day (NLLD) is right around the corner, and to help prepare for your advocacy efforts, we’ve created the 2011 ALA scorecards. Did your representative support school libraries in the Senate or the House? Did your senator co-sponsor a bill that would help school libraries? Did your representative sign onto a key letter requesting support for school libraries? Our scorecards are the definitive way to answer these and other questions.
Refer to these scorecards to hold your elected representatives accountable. If they didn’t cosponsor critical library legislation, ask them why. If they did, be sure to thank them and show your appreciation for their support of libraries.
