Send a message in support of NY libraries. According to the New York Library Association, Governor Cuomo, despite having an extra $5.5 billion in revenue this year and proposing up to a 4.8% increase in state education funding has proposed flat funding for our community libraries. Last year, the Governor poposed a 4.7% cut in local library aid yet a 3.8% increase in education funding. In fact, last year, the approved state budget included a 5.7% increase in education funding but only a 1.2% increase in local library aid. New York State vote_button_rgbEducation Law requires library aid for 2015-2016 to be $102.6 million based on the most recent census data. The Governor’s flat funding proposal puts state library aid at 86.6 million which is equivalent to 1997 funding. This is $16 million short of where the budget should be. Please use this pre-written letter to voice your support for full funding for libraries in the coming budget year.
