Tell NJ Lawmakers to oppose NJ Library Cuts ( Proposed Legislation A2555 )


The Library is essential to our youth's mental development and helps job hunters in this tough economy find jobs.


The Governor’s proposed budget cuts state funding to libraries by 74%. This cut:

ELIMINATES Internet access and electronic journals in hundreds of libraries

ELIMINATES the delivery of materials from other libraries to you - more than 3 million items were delivered in 2009

ELIMINATES 50% of State Aid to public libraries

To lose these programs will put more pressure on local property taxes and will cause some local libraries to close.
