Obama Proposes $265,556,000 for Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)

In the next year's fiscal budget, president Obama has requested $265,556,000 for the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), which represents an increase of $1,453,000 over 2009 year's budget.

The President requested $213,240,000 for the nation’s 123,000 libraries. Of that amount, approximately 80 percent is distributed through the Grants to States program to the State Library Administrative Agencies (SLAAs) in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, and freely associated state, according to a population-based formula. These grants help libraries meet the community needs, use technology to develop new service models and reach underserved populations.

The full table of the president's proposal is available here. To see what services are supported with the money, go to the IMLS press release .

In times when library budgets have been drastically slashed, it is good to know that our president values libraries and librarians.
