The time is now to advocate for libraries!  To celebrate this
Valentine's Day, have your teens, parents, children and library
supporters flood federal elected officials' district offices with
Valentines that express love for your library and its staff and ask for
support for important legislation. 

The ALA Youth Divisions - AASL, ALSC and YALSA - are sending out a call
to action to library workers to have teens, children, parents and
library supporters in their community send "I Love My Teen Services
Librarian" or "I Love My School Librarian" Valentine cards to their U.S.
Senators and Representatives, and to ask their elected officials to
co-sponsor the SKILLS Act &/or support LSTA funding for libraries.
Currrently only about eight Congresspersons have signed on to co-sponsor
the SKILLs Act.  A major grassroots effort is needed in order for this
critical piece of library legislation to get passed.  Please consider
participating in this campaign.  For more information go to  

Thanks for all that you do to ensure your community has access to
wonderful library services and resources, and thanks to the youth
divisions' Legislation Committees for creating this campaign!
