Good evening.  My name is Chris Carbone, President of the NJ Library Association and Director of the South Brunswick Public Library.

As the leader of a tax funded, local government educational institution, I understand the harsh realities of budgets, tax rates, making hard choices and setting priorities.

Federal Budget Cuts

Thank you to our Federal Legislators

 

Federal Budget Update

NJLA posted a legislative alert last week urging the library community to contact their federal representatives regarding funding for library services.  In his budget proposal, President Trump calls for the elimination of two key programs which provide critical funds in NJ Libraries.  The two programs are the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL).
