The Delaware State budget has settled upon a 5.85% cut to library State Aid.   Libraries have not had increases in funding for almost a decade yet Delaware’s population continues to grow and demands on libraries and their services also increase.  While the DELNET (catalog) funding was secured, any type of funding cut for libraries is impactful.  Please thank your state legislators for their active support to secure DELNET funding and to garner support now for the FY19 budget.
