*RED ALERT: Dr. Hayden Needs Your Help!*

Just seven days.  That’s how long the Senate will be in session this week
and next before leaving Washington until after Labor Day.  Because the
Senate’s schedule will be even more compressed and chaotic when Members
return prior to Election Day, and a post-election “lame duck” session is
not assured, *right now is by far the best chance we have to help Dr. Carla
Hayden get confirmed as the next Librarian of Congress*.

Please, if you haven’t yet taken just 5 minutes to ask both of your U.S.
Senators to support Dr. Hayden's nomination, now is the time!  If you like,
check out these talking points about Dr. Hayden
 and the Librarian’s position. Then, use the links below or go to ALA’s
Legislative Action Center <http://cqrcengage.com/ala/> to email, tweet or
phone their offices with this simple message: “Please confirm Dr. Carla
Hayden to be Librarian of Congress now.”

That’s all there is to it and there’s not an hour to lose.  Please help Dr.
Hayden make history. Act today!
