NYS Library Aid FY 2016-2017 - Needs Your Support!

We need YOU to TAKE ACTION NOW and let your elected officials know that State Library Aid must be treated fairly in this year’s final budget.  Although Governor Cuomo has proposed an additional $992M in education funding in this year’s budget, a 4.3% increase over last year, he once again proposed flat funding for State Library Aid.  Our libraries are critical to the state’s educational infrastructure.
