We love libraries across the Southern Tier! #LibrariesAreForEveryone

Local libraries need New York State support! Our region’s libraries will lose a half million dollars in the 2022/2023 Executive Budget. These funds are essential to supporting and growing library services for residents in the Finger Lakes, Southern Tier, and Western New York.

2022 Library Funding Priorities:

  1. $123M for State Library Aid
  2. $45M for Public Library Construction Aid

Rural Library & Social Wellbeing Project:

Beginning with a rich question set: Are libraries a component of social wellbeing in resource-poor geographies? If so, what practices do they employ? We launched this IMLS funded, three-year nation-wide research, resource, and education project in 2018.
