Cautiously Good News for Libraries in Governor's May Budget Revision!
Governor Brown's May budget revision includes the $15.2 million for libraries that many of you fought so hard for earlier in the year. The $15.2 million includes $8.5 million for the California Library Services Act, $3 million for the Public Library Fund, and $3.7 million for California Library Literacy Services. Clearly we are not out of the woods yet, as the Governor's budget revision still relies on a series of tax extensions, but it is good news for now. Let's take the opportunity to thank the Governor and our legislators for acknowledging the value of libraries and literacy!
