The Colorado House of Representatives has scheduled for today the consideration of HR17-1008, a resolution recognizing the importance of Colorado libraries. The resolution states, in part, that “Colorado libraries are a vital and essential public resource that provide free and equal access to educational and recreational material and enrich the lives of all citizens.” The resolution goes on to stress the importance of IMLS funding for libraries. And, in paragraph 9, State Publications is listed as one of our state’s “essential library programs and services.”
You can watch the presentation of the resolution live on the House floor today (or, if you are reading this after today, you can view a recording) by going to the Colorado Channel.
