Please Contact Bennet and Udall in support of the SKILLS Act

Please take action today!

The Strengthening Kids’ Interest in Learning and Libraries (SKILLS) Act is a bill introduced in the Senate that would ensure that students everywhere have access to a quality school library program.

Here’s how you can help move this piece of legislation forward:

  1. Go the ALA Legislative Action Center by clicking here:  SKILLS
  2. Type in your zip code to find the phone numbers for your senators’ offices. (You can also be connected to your senators’ offices by calling the capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121.)
  3. Call both senators and ask them to co-sponsor the SKILL Act using the provided talking points and your own stories about why school libraries are so important.
  4. Fill out the feedback card or email twegner@alawash.org to share what you heard from your senators’ office.

Please pass this message along to your colleagues, library supporters and other constituents to ensure the SKILLs Act continues moving forward.
