A unified advocacy effort is critical to the overall success of libraries across Mississippi.  Helping lawmakers understand why libraries are a worthwhile investment is essential, and the most effective way to achieve this goal is to create a stronger voice for libraries across Mississippi.  Together we can make a difference.  We share a unified goal to increase visibility about the importance of libraries to all Mississippi communities.

We ask all Mississippians who value the services of their local library to consider speaking out about the benefits of public funding of the state’s libraries.  We hope you will take a moment to call, email, or write your lawmakers to share your personal stories of how your library has helped you and your family.  For a listing of members of the Mississippi House of Representatives and Mississippi Senators who represent your area, visit www.legislature.ms.gov.
