Urban Libraries Council Statement on President Trump’s Proposed Defunding of Institute of Museum and Library Services

“For 20 years, the Institute of Museum and Library Services has served our nation well, ensuring public libraries, one of our democracy’s critical institutions, have the funding and resources needed to serve people of all races, ethnicities, religions and socio-economic statuses. The president’s proposed cut would hurt the most vulnerable among us, including low-income and marginalized populations served by both rural and urban libraries,” said Michael Sherrod, Executive Board Chair of the Urban Libraries Council.
