New York State: Libraries brace for proposed state cuts

With New York state looking to cuts costs wherever it can, many state agencies and organizations are scrambling to make-up the difference. Libraries are part of that cut.

Libraries face an 18 percent cut in next year’s budget which is $18 million. Next year’s proposed cut is on top of the three percent cut libraries dealt with this year. The drop brings state aid to levels not seen since 1993.
