Library News: California Libraries Hit in Budget Cuts

Newly elected Governor, Jerry Brown, releases his 2011-2012 Budget; the California Library Association (CLA) declares “Library Funding Decimated.”

If passed, the Governor’s Budget proposal will completely eliminate state funding for the following programs: Public Library Foundation, California Library Literacy and English Acquisition Services, and the California Library Services Act. Library cuts would total $30.4 million.

Read about the specifics of the proposed State Library Budget. Contact your local Assembly Members and Senators and urge them to reject these devastating cuts.

Library News: California Library Laws 2011

The California State Library recently published the California Library Laws 2011. The document includes relevant California Code of Regulations that relate to public libraries, the State Library, and other library-related organizations and operations (like Nolo!).

Here at Nolo, we appreciate the public service that libraries and librarians provide. They help keep us connected to the public and support the accessibility of our resources and do-it-yourself empowerment. We hope that by sharing Library News that directly affects our library readers, we can continue our legacy of relevance and information-sharing for 40 more years!
