Action Alert: Please Contact Republican Lawmakers About State Budget

Thanks to previous efforts of library supporters like you, Joint Finance Committee recently restored funding for BadgerLink, but pending cuts to public library system aids, statewide resource contracts and maintenance of effort funding for public libraries will be destructive to library service in Wisconsin.

Please click here to take action to urge Republican legislators to restore library funding in the 2011-13 state biennial budget! Note that we are targeting ONLY Republican members of the state legislature. If your legislator is not a member of the majority party, they will not need a contact at this time. Therefore, once you type in your zip code and click to send your message, it will select only targeted legislators.

You'll also be able to search for phone numbers of your legislators. Click on "Elected Officials" to get more detailed information about each. We encourage you to follow up your email with a personal phone call. Tips on effective calls are available here:

Thank you for taking a moment to help! You can make the difference.
