Good News for PA Libraries!

Pennsylvania’s General Assembly passed the final budget (H.B. 2499, P.N. 4513) includes an all-time record-high amount for public libraries!  After a huge blow in 2002-03 which forced some libraries to close their doors and many others to fire / lay off staff and, more importantly, cut services to the public, this is wonderful news.  There is some bad news in the allocation of the dollars, but the biggest nail-biter is over (for this year!)  Hooray for our public library users!
