SIGN THE PETITION: Don't defund Missouri Libraries!
Missouri Reps just voted to completely defund the state's public libraries in retaliation for a lawsuit over its recent illegal book ban law.
The state legislators believe they are above the law and set the new budget for libraries to $0.
"State Aid helps libraries provide relevant collections, literacy based programming, and technology resources to their communities," Otter Bowman, president of the MLA told Motherboard in a statement. "Our rural libraries rely the most heavily on this funding to serve their communities, and they will be crippled by this drastic budget cut."
Don't let these retaliatory cuts stand!
