Digital Postcard to State Legislators
Dear Legislator,

Our library provides valuable, life-changing services to my family and community. 2020 demonstrated how important libraries are to residents of the Finger Lakes, Southern Tier, and Western New York. Our librarians stepped up to provide essential services to all community members who were homebound due to COVID-19. Remote work and home schooling would have been difficult without electronic library materials, online programs, and wireless internet access.

It has been four years since libraries received additional financial support from New York State. And, the recent 22.6% withholding in aid will cause long term damage to the mission of libraries. The pandemic is not over, so our libraries and library system need your support. These institutions will play a vital role in helping our community and New York State rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic.

I respectfully ask you to fight for fair, equitable funding for local libraries and library systems, including:
$123M for State Library Aid
$45M for Public Library Construction Aid

We need your help!
Thank you for your consideration.
Send a digital postcard to your legislators to let them know how much your library means to you!
I love my library because... (Please share a story about what your library means to you.)
