Recently, the White House released the budget proposal for FY 2019. The proposal eliminates funding for the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). IMLS provides more than $183.6 million for libraries through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). The proposal also eliminates funding for the Innovative Approaches to Literacy program, a Department of Education program that provides $27 million for school libraries.
Ultimately, Congress has final say over the budget. Today, let Congress know that federal library funding is important to you and your community. Use the talking points on or visit
Do you love our inter-library loan system Michigan eLibrary? A large part of funding for MeL comes from the Institute of Museum & Library Services, part of the budget that is being proposed to be eliminated. Contact your rep today!
