Teens & the Institute of Museum & Library Services
The White House's budget calls for eliminating the Institute of Museum & Library Services (IMLS), the only federal agency charged with providing support to the nation's hundreds of thousands of libraries and museums. Please share your photo or story of how support from IMLS has enabled you and your library or museum to help the teens in your community. YALSA will use this information to advocate against the elimination of IMLS. Thank you!
