AAP URGES CONGRESS TO SUPPORT COVID-19 RELIEF FOR AMERICA’S PUBLIC LIBRARIES
The Association of American Publishers (AAP) today sent a letter to congressional leaders encouraging emergency funding for America’s public libraries – community institutions that have been hard hit by the COVID-19 crisis.
In its letter, AAP notes that it supports the $2 billion figure put forward by the American Library Association (ALA). To help ensure that libraries across the country are able to provide the essential public services that their respective communities need most, AAP respectfully urges Congress to provide the funding directly to State and local government authorities.
