I foolishly booked travel for the National Book Festival yesterday. Today, I received this from my State Library Contact:
FYI...as of today, my understanding is that there may not be funds for the states from COSLA to support state library participation this year. Apparently imls has not committed funds as yet. Still under discussion.
FYI. No one from the NY State Library will be able to attend if COSLA/Imls does not provide support.
It would be nice if someone from the Center for the Book let us know of the uncertainty of funding before sending out hotel information.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
