FY 2018 library funding remains uncut by House Appropriations Committee
From the ALA District Dispatch:
Yesterday evening, the House Appropriations Committee confirmed its support for federal library funding by voting to approve the same funding levels passed by the Labor-HHS Subcommittee last week. Yesterday’s action was another significant step toward ensuring FY 2018 funding of $231 million for the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)—including $183.6 million for Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) programs—and $27 million for the Department of Education’s Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) program. These sums equal FY 2017 levels.
