NYLA Library Advocacy Day 2014 is Wednesday, February 26. Whether or not you are able to join us in Albany, NOW is the perfect time to e-mail your elected representatives and tell them you opposed Governor Cuomo’s $4M cut to Library Aid.
Take Action NOW! Governor Cuomo has proposed $81.6M in Library Aid, which removes the additional $4M provided by the Legislature in the 2013-14 Budget ($85.6M). This represents a 4.7% cut in Library Aid! In our ‘first round’ of advocacy, over 2300 individuals took action and wrote to the Governor opposing his $4M cut to Library Aid. Our ‘second round’ letter is now ready and targeted to YOUR representatives in the NYS Senate, Assembly, and specific members of the leadership. Even if you wrote to Governor Cuomo, your action is needed again! The entire process takes less than two minutes, and it makes a difference!
