H.R. 8822 - House bill to support funding for social workers in public libraries

    Hi,

    The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) is urging members to write to their representatives in support of H.R. 8822

    Hopefully, this discussion board is an appropriate place to suggest that librarians who aren't also social workers do likewise! I'm new to the interest group, having been in ALA awhile but only just starting my MSW program, so sincere apologies if this news had already gotten around and I just didn't see it in the recent posts.
