NYLA Legislative Alert

The New York Library Association recently commissioned a Zogby Poll that bolsters its 2008 State Budget Priorities request to the Governor and Legislature. A majority of respondents favor increasing both operating aid and book aid to libraries. NYLA's press release and poll results can be found here under Headlines.

The Governor will be releasing his proposed 2008-09 State Budget on Tuesday, January 22nd and NYLA will keep its members informed of its impact on the library community. Given the state's worsening fiscal situation, NYLA is preparing for the worse- potential cuts in Library Aid.
