Encourage Governor Wolf to Support the Libraries

csWe know from the campaign that improving education is a key goal for our new governor, Tom Wolf.  We also know that the governor has first-hand experience working with public and academic libraries in his home county of York.

Our first job this year is to highlight how crucial library services are to a successful educational environment and to offer our assistance in rebuilding and reshaping education in Pennsylvania.

Please take a minute to send Governor Tom Wolf a message of welcome and an offer of assistance as he strives to improve education for all Pennsylvanians.
