Thank You Library Advocates!
The 2013-2014 state budget has passed and, for the first time since 2007, the budget includes some library funding increases!The new state budget will:
- level-fund the Public Library Subsidy at $53,507,000;
- level-fund Library Services for the Visually Impaired & Disabled at $2,567,000;
- increase funding for the State Library by $11,000 up to $1,957,000, (+ 0.5%); and,
- increase funding for Library Access/POWER Library by $250,000 up to $3,071,000 (+8.9%.)
Your efforts, which included writing advocacy letters, submitting video testimonials and making in-person legislative visits, are what helped to secure this increased funding—the first increases in six years. Thank you for your hard work and dedication!
