Proposed Government Funding for Libraries in 2006

Brian G. writes “The funding levels for 2006 spending on libraries was announced on June 9, 2005. The American Library Association has issued a press release that summarizes the suggested spending levels.
While the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) saw almost a $7 million increase, I am still shocked by the decrease in education and funding to support school libraries. The U.S. politicians continues to ignore the importance of education.”
