New Federal Bill Could Help Build Larkspur's New Library

The American Library Association this week praised the re-introduction of standalone legislation that would provide $5 billion to support new construction and improvements to library facilities across the nation.

The Build America’s Libraries Act (S. 127), sponsored by Senators Jack Reed (D-RI), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), and Ron Wyden (D-OR), would provide funds to address the critical infrastructure needs of America’s libraries, including needs that have arisen due to COVID–19 as well long overdue improvements needed to “better serve rural, low-income and underserved areas, as well as people with disabilities and other vulnerable library users.”

ALA is asking library advocates to urge their Senators to join as cosponsors of the Build America’s Libraries Act.
