Let Your State Representatives Know What Libraries Mean to You

As New York State contemplates adjustments to the enacted budget and cuts to education of 15-20% we need you to speak up and let your legislators know about the effects these cuts will have for your library.

Both state aid and construction funds for libraries were reduced for the state budget for FY 2020-21, and increased cuts at the levels proposed will mean communities lose access to resources, services, and possibly
staff when our neighbors need them most. Use the form here to contact your state representatives with a personal message about what cuts to your library would mean to you. Your voice and your story are powerful.
