Legislative Links

Much of the funding for our system, and for library services in general, comes from the state and federal goverments. It is important for libraries and library users to let their elected officials know how important library services are to themselves and to all citizens.

Below is a list of the legislators from districts in our area. Click on a name to find addresses, phone numbers, e-mail links, and other information. If you don't know which is your district or representative, go to the Minnesota State Legislature site.

To contact your legislators, see the Minnesota legislature's Contact your Senator and Contact your House Member web pages.

Your city council members and county commissioners are also important people to contact.
