Subject: Participate in Supporting South Dakota Libraries!

This is National Library Week, the perfect opportunity to write your elected officials to let them know how important libraries are to you and your community.
Your message will make a difference! Please take just a few minutes to send a quick message to them from your state library association's take action page:

Libraries continue to be busier than ever helping families, students, seniors, etc., during these tough times. But as we know, public libraries, school libraries, and academic libraries are still struggling to maintain budgets, staff, and resources to serve the needs of their communities. Your state government provides much needed funding for libraries to provide public access to the Internet to everyone, critical databases for individuals and small businesses, homework help, and much more.

Why not include in your message a personal story about how your library makes a positive difference in your life!

Please forward this message to your friends, family, and colleagues, and ask them to take this opportunity to support libraries in your state!
Thanks for taking the time to make a difference.
