It’s “appropriations” season again in Washington. That time every year when
the President submits a budget to Congress and, in theory at least,
Congress drafts and votes on bills to federally fund everything from llama
farming to, well, libraries. Never mind where llamas get their cash, but
libraries in every state in the nation benefit from funds allocated by
Congress for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), the only
federally funded program specifically dedicated to supporting libraries.
Last year, libraries received just under $183 million in LSTA funding,
about $156 million of which flowed to states as matching grants.
