Tell NJ Lawmakers to oppose NJ Library Cuts ( Proposed Legislation A2555 )
This petition had 68 supporters
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.
