The New York State Legislature has passed a budget that contains good news for New York's library community and those they serve!
Library Aid will be increased by more than $5 million over the Governor's proposal of flat funding, bringing Library Aid up to $91.6 million - this is the largest increase to library aid in 7 years and matches the 6% increase education aid received!
MTA Tax: $1.3 million was appropriated to rebate those libraries that paid in last year and Libraries and Library Systems now have permanent MTA tax exemption. The New York Library Community has been working to get this exemption since 2011.
We would like to thank everyone who stepped up, spoke up and kept spreading the word for the need for others to do the same. Now is the time to voice your thanks to your elected representatives for their support. The New York Library Association's Online Advocacy Center provides you with a pre-drafted thank you message or feel free to call or write your legislators personally, to express your thanks!
