Support Your Libraries

Library Advocates need to remind their Legislators and the Governor to restore the proposed $18 million or 18% cut in Library Aid.

Please go to NYLA's Online Advocacy Center and send a fax/email to your legislators to remind them not to forget about their commitments to restore Library Aid. If these cuts go through, Library Aid will be reduced to $80.5 million, a level not seen since 1993.

Library usage has skyrocketed across the state and nation. Now is not the time to cut public services that are in the greatest demand and needed the most.
Libraries have already been cut twice last year, we have contributed our share, now it is time for others to do their part to solve the state's budget deficit.
