Per Capita Funding to Public Libraries at Risk of Being Permanently Frozen

The per capita formula funding level is now at risk of being frozen at the FY 2010 levels for FY 2011 and beyond.
The Governor’s FY 2011 budget proposal includes another deferral of the scheduled increase in the per capita formula funding level for the public libraries and regional libraries and the State Library Resource Center (SLRC).  More alarming is that recently the Department of Legislative Services recommended that the per capita formula funding level be frozen at the FY 2010 level for FY 2011 and every year thereafter.
Take Action!
It is critical that we contact state legislators and urge them to stop the permanent freeze of the per capita formula funding for public libraries.  In particular, members of the Senate Budget & Taxation Committee and House Appropriations Committee, who are meeting soon, should be contacted.  For additional information and a simple means to contact legislators, go to Capwiz and click on the Action Alert entitled “Maryland: Per Capita Funding to Public Libraries at Risk of Being Permanently Frozen.”
