    Absolutely, Jim. I wrote to CA state library to write a letter of support. I'm waiting to hear back.

    SCLA received a letter last week. Our board drafted and sent a response yesterday.

    Sarah,

    Would you be willing to share SCLA's letter with the Louisiana Library Association? We just received one of these from the LA Freedom Caucus.

    Absolutely, Amanda.  I have attached both the letter from  the South Carolina Freedom Caucus and the SCLA response.
