Current Per Person State Aid to NJ Libraries is Less Than The Cost of a Postage Stamp!
Please ask your legislators to support resolutions to provide an additional 3 million in the New Jersey State Per Capita Aid Program in the upcoming state budget. Funding for library programs has been at a greatly reduced level for six straight years. The current level of support is only 41 cents per person per year! Since FY11, the state budget has increased by billions of dollars. Many programs which had suffered funding cuts in the FY11 budget have been restored. Funding for library programs, however, have remained at this decreased level.
