Fund the 2013-2015 budget requests from the Nebraska Library Commission

    1. Petition by

      Manya Shorr

      Omaha, United States

Help fund ebooks and electronic databases for Nebraska residents!

There are three requests that need to be funded:

1. NEW direct state funding for ebook and eaudio for public libraries. The request is for $925,000 or $.50 per person. This means more ebooks to check out for free!

2. NebraskAccess. Help Nebraska residents find the information they need. $25,461 for database subscriptions. $141,085 for access to eLibrary or similar database for public and private schools. The internet does not always give reliable information but these databases do!

3. Regional Library Systems. $90,000 to fund these valuable institutions that help unite libraries across the state. The six systems were established to provide access to improved library services through the cooperation of all types of libraries and media centers within the counties included in each System area.

      Ebooks have become my favorite way to borrow library books. I love the convenience of browsing for a book at home and being able to instantly download it to my Kindle and begin reading. Please provide funding to continue to grow Nebraska's ebook library.
