Since 2007 Library Aid in NYS is down 20% even though the number of items borrowed has increased over 11% http://bit.ly/12gOSTq #NYLALAD13


Libraries are the #1 point of internet access for those that do not have access at home. Fund Library Aid. http://bit.ly/12gOSTq #NYLALAD13


Libraries saved NYers $1.8B in '11 versus the cost of buying the items borrowed. Fully Fund Library Aid. http://bit.ly/12gOSTq #NYLALAD13


Library Aid is less than 1/10 of 1% of the NYS Budget - Support Fully Funding Library Aid - http://bit.ly/12gOSTq #NYLALAD13


Fully funding NYS Library Aid would require less than 4% of the 4% proposed increase in Education Aid. http://bit.ly/12gOSTq #NYLALAD13
