Funding for libraries is only three-tenths of one percent (.3%) of the entire state budget. If we make enough noise, we might be able to keep our funding at the present level.
Here’s our message:“Please freeze library funding next year at the same amount it is this year. Thank you.”
Here are two local legislators’ email addresses:
Mike Turzai: firstname.lastname@example.org
Jane Claire Orie: email@example.com
