STATEMENT: The Vermont Library Association supports and endorses the recent statement by American Library Association President, Julie Todaro, regarding the proposed budget cuts to the Institute of Museum and Library Services.:
WASHINGTON, DC — In response to President Trump’s proposal to eliminate the Institute of Museum and Library Services in his FY2018 budget, American Library Association (ALA) President Julie Todaro today issued the following statement:
Thursday, May 18, 2017
8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
What makes the opportunity to be part of the VLA so exciting and energizing is the chance to bring our libraries together. We can advocate more effectively and launch programs more successfully when we marshal our resources. I don’t believe that means a cookie-cutter mold that all libraries must match but rather an umbrella under which our ideas, endeavors and inspiration can fit. I hope to have the chance to work with Vermont Library Association and bring forward our designs and dreams.
-- Margaret Woodruff, VLA President
