It's National Library Week
Take a moment to let your legislators know the library matters to you!
This is a great opportunity to promote and advocate for our library, both locally and on a state level. One of the primary issues we are advocating for is bill A967/S234. This would make a $3 million supplemental appropriation for increased Per Capita Library Aid. Since being reduced by 42% in 2010 Per capita state aid for libraries has remained flat (In 201 it went from $1 to $0.41 per capita), during that time the NJ budget has increased by 18.6%. The New Jersey Library Association is asking library supporters around the state to contact their New Jersey Legislators and advocate for increased library support.
Please take a moment to let our legislators know how important our library is to our community. Then forward it along to your friends and families so they can help spread the word!
The Library is in the process of revising it's strategic plan and we need your help! We are currently conducting a telephone survey of residents. If someone calls and wants to ask you questions about the library please take a few moments to complete the survey.
