One of your most important tasks as a library supporter is to communicate with elected officials whose actions can have an enormous impact on your library and your community. Whether you work with public, academic, school, or special libraries, state laws and policies affect libraries of all types. ILA monitors all legislation affecting libraries, from budgets to legislation on filtering and open meetings law, from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to pension reform, to laws governing municipalities and tax caps.
