WYOMING LIBRARY ASSOCIATION



WLA STANDS WITH UKRAINIAN LIBRARIANS

The Wyoming Library Association offers this message of support to our brave counterparts in Ukraine. As Ukrainians fight in their streets to protect their nation and its people from the Russian invasion, the Ukrainian Library Association (ULA) has responded to the call. In the midst of all this war, Ukrainian librarians are working to protect their cultural heritage – their nation’s identity and what it means to future generations. Librarians are training military and civilians in providing home-care for the injured, and have formed an “Internet Military” to defend Ukraine in cyberspace by waging war against misinformation. ULA has even created a national digital repository where precious information can be digitized and stored, protecting it for future generations.

Libraries, regardless of their political state, are entrusted with the education and history of their communities. In that regard, the Wyoming Library Association stands with our fellow Ukrainian librarians as they resist the ongoing and unprovoked attack from Russian forces.
