Urgent: NYS Library Aid FY 2017-2018 – Needs Your Support!

NYS Library Aid FY 2017-2018 – Needs Your Support!
KEEP THE MESSAGE GOING – PASS IT ON!

As the final budget is being crafted the NYS Senate and NYS Assembly one house budget proposals remain on the chopping block!

TAKE ACTION NOW! Use NYLA’s pre-drafted letter to voice your support for fully funding NYS Library Aid in the FY 2017-2018 Budget.

Even if you have already written to your representative, please follow this link to send this NEW message to your legislators that library funding is NOT NEGOTIABLE!

Senate

  • State Library Aid: +$8M over Governor’s Executive Budget ($99.6M total)
  • State Library Construction Aid: +$15M ($29M total)

Assembly

  • State Library Aid: +$4M ($95.6M total)
  • State Library Construction Aid: +$11M ($25M total)

These adds are a testament to the hard work and commitment of New York’s library advocates. Thanks to your efforts, we currently have support in each house heading into final negotiations with the Governor. But, remember these numbers are mere proposals, and nothing is assured. Unless we convince the legislature to dig in and defend library funding, we still face Governor Cuomo’s funding cuts!

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO DEFEND LIBRARY FUNDING – NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT! We are counting on you to ensure the legislature fights for libraries as negotiations take shape.

TAKE ACTION NOW! Use NYLA’s pre-drafted letter to voice your support for fully funding NYS Library Aid in the FY 2017-2018 Budget.
