On Tuesday, January 11, the Texas Legislature started their 2011 session. The #1 thing on their agenda is covering a $27 billion budget shortfall. We need your help to minimize the damage to libraries. Please contact as many state senators and representatives as you can and let them know how important libraries are to you and your community. You can find out who YOUR representatives are at the legislature’s “Who Represents Me? ” page. You can also fill out a "Texans Love Libraries" card here in the library and we'll pass it on to the legislators for you. The Texas Library Association web site tells you the specific issues we are concerned about.
