ALA Releases Statement Praising Senate's FY2023 Appropriations Bill

ALA shared that the FY2023 “funding bills released by the Senate Appropriations Committee on July 28 would, for the first time in 26 years, provide federal funding to modernize library buildings nationwide. If enacted, the bills would provide $20 million in new funding to improve public and Tribal library and museum facilities, which would be distributed by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and to conduct a study of their physical condition.” The bills would also provide funding for grants under IMLS’s Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and the Department of Education’s Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) program.

“We welcome the Senate Appropriations Committee’s historic proposal to bring needed investments in improving library facilities, from fixing leaking roofs to replacing ventilation systems to making accessibility renovations,” says ALA president Lessa Kanani'opua Pelayo-Lozada. “I am asking library advocates to remain engaged with their members of Congress to highlight the need for these investments as the House and Senate negotiate the final funding bills for next fiscal year.”

For more information, read the press release.
