More State Funding Challenges

(Libraries, News, State and Regional) Permanent link

Earlier today, I posted a message here about the challenges faced by public libraries due to the uncertainties of state funding. The story is evolving rapidly...  

I learned this morning, April 2, the full state Senate has approved Senate Bill 247 with State Aid to Public Libraries line reduced to $7.5 million. This is less than half of what is required by state statute PA 89 which calls for $15.4 million in state aid. This is a further threat to the state match of federal funds for MeL. Stay tuned...
