Trump's FY 2018 Budget Proposal Would Eliminate The Institute of Museum and Library Services

Jun 9, 2017


In his 2018 Fiscal Year budget proposal, President Donald Trump wants to eliminate the Institute of Museum and Library Services, which would affect library funding and the technological services libraries provide. IMLS, a government agency, disburses funds through the Library Services and Technology Act--or LSTA, which grants money to libraries to improve technology. Cape Girardeau Public Library Director Betty Martin spoke with KRCU's Marissanne Lewis-Thompson more about this.
