THANK YOU . . . . THANK YOU . . . . THANK YOU!!!!!

Thanks go out from the Southwest Florida Library Network (SWFLN) to Florida’s Governor, Rick Scott, for fully funding the Florida Multitype Library Cooperatives for the 2015/2016 year!

We appreciate your validation, Governor Scott, of the importance of the support Florida’s Multitype Library Cooperatives provide to Florida’s libraries and, in turn, to the citizens of this great state!

We also thank Secretary of State Ken Detzner, SWFLN’s 2013 Library Champion, for his untiring encouragement of our efforts and the support of his office.

Special appreciation goes out to SWFLN’s Library Champion for years 2011 and 2012, Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto, for her determined backing of our efforts to improve the lives of Southwest Florida’s populace.

We also thank SWFLN’s Library Champion for 2014, Representative Matt Hudson, for recognizing the needs of the Multitype Library Cooperatives that serve and enhance the services of the libraries in his District.

We thank the Governor’s Office of Policy and Budget for taking the time to understand why we are important and how we add value to the services enjoyed by Floridians.

Please click here to find the Governor's contact information.  SWFLN encourages you take a few minutes of your time and write him a personal letter to thank him for his support.  Tell him why you appreciate his funding the Multitype Library Cooperatives, especially SWFLN!  All other links provided in this email will guide you in sending thanks, as well, to all individuals that participated in this cooperative effort!  Please take the opportunity now to thank them for their acknowledgment of the great service we help you provide.  Remember:  For every dollar the State of Florida spends on Libraries, there is a $10.18 return on investment.

THANK YOU . . . . THANK YOU . . . . THANK YOU!!!!!
