State Budget

Dear Library Advocate: Negotiations on the 2008-09 State Budget are coming to a conclusion and library supporters need to reach out again to their state legislators to urge them to restore the $5 million cut in Library Aid. The Legislature and Governor have agreed to provide a $1.8 billion increase in school aid and to fund this overly generous increase, they have to find the money to pay for it from other programs like Library Aid.

So please send a letter via email or fax using NYLA's Online Advocacy Center at to contact your state legislators today. Please forward this to as many people as possible. Thanks for your cooperation.
