Our challenging economic times make libraries an even more valuable resource, as evidenced by the increased use of libraries. Now more than ever, it is important for our state senators and representatives to understand the real value of North Carolina Libraries.
Please contact your legislators and let them know the value of your library and the necessity of maintaining stable state funding for our public libraries.

Dear (insert your legislators name),
I am a (Trustee, Friend, Customer, or Concerned Citizen) for the (insert your library name). Our library is busier than ever. The resources they provide are important and vital to our citizens as they look for work. In fact, I have used the Job Career Accelerator resource to help my college age child to look for a job.
State funding is critical for my library to continue the good work they do. Please maintain level funding for our library. Thank you.
