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!
