You might want to read this article if you support public libraries. Some of the federal funds could go to improve your local libraries which are doing a booming business right now providing Internet for job searches as well as all the free books, movies, etc... that they can afford to supply. They're requesting you contact your legislators to let them know what you feel is important in your community.
There's information here about school libraries, too, but most school funds are for building improvements. They mention it could delay lay-offs but I'm not sure that you can actually use the funds in that manner. In Tennessee schools you can't use one-time money to provide salaries for permanent positions.
