Mission and Objectives

The Corporate Committee for Library Investment (CCLI) is working to educate Congress and other federal policymakers about the value of libraries for American businesses and taxpayers for the purpose of maximizing federal funding for our nation’s libraries.

CCLI will:

  • Support Congressional appropriations for programs under the Library Services and Technology Act and the Innovative Approa­ches to Literacy program, and ongoing funding for the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

  • Support reauthorization, with robust funding, of the Museum and Library Services Act.

  • Support the meaningful inclusion of libraries in legislation authorizing funding and making appropriations for national infrastructure investment to facilitate libraries' construction and modernization as well as their deployment of high-speed broadband networks across the nation, particularly in rural communities.

  • Forego advocacy and other coordinated Committee action on all matters of law or policy not directly involving the Mission of CCLI.
