Statehouse Updates
February 10, 2017
Indiana Library Federation is your advocate!
The Budget Bill, HB1001, was heard in the Ways and Means (W&M) Committee on Thursday. Thank you to ILF members in key districts who reached out to their House Representatives on W&M about two items in the State Budget: internet connectivity for libraries and schools and funding for INSPIRE databases. Review our testimony provided in the hearing.

Check out the Bose Report (link below) for more information about our activities this past week. 
Save the Date: March 14 for Library Day at the Statehouse
Indiana Library Federation will hold its Library Day at the Statehouse on Tuesday, March 14. 

Note that we hope to celebrate SCR14, a resolution honoring 125 years of Indiana Library Federation. Registration will open next week.
