On Thursday, February 22, Rose Datum testified in front of the state legislature on behalf of the Connecticut Library Association. Rose works for our own Old Lyme Phoebe Griffin Noyes town library and she chose to have her voice heard.
The CT State Library budget is part of the overall Governor’s budget for the state, and it is facing cuts this year. CLA was looking for people to testify in front of the appropriations sub-committee on behalf of libraries, and they were looking specifically for students. Rose stepped up, wrote her own testimony, and was the first student to present her very eloquent case.
Take a look at her written testimony:
