MAY: Library Connections

Lifelong Learning at the Library

Mayor Gloria’s library-friendly FY23 proposed budget contains no library cuts and includes increases for library materials, security, window washing, replacing outdated public computers, and the city match of private library donations. The LibrariesTransformSD thanks the mayor and city council for this step in the right direction. However, the library system remains underfunded compared to other systems in California and nationwide.

Follow the LINK to send a postcard or email, call your representative, or testify before Council and ask them to:

* Convert employees in the popular Do Your Homework @ the Library program to positions with benefits,
* Increase spending to bring library materials and resource budgets up to national standards,
* Address long-recognized deferred maintenance and branch infrastructure needs, and
* Ensure all branches have access to 21st-century technology.
