The public library in your town is not getting its share of more than $2-Million in state aid that it should be getting this year and the State Librarian thinks it’s because the Governor and the Legislature have violated the law in their efforts to balance the state budget. State Librarian Sara Parker says libraries should be getting money from the special tax on income of athletes and entertainers who live elsewhere but perform here. But this year, they’re getting none of it. The tax produces about $22-Million. Libraries are to get ten percent of that. She says the failure of the Governor and Legislature to approve the funding hurts small libraries the most becuase they have the smallest book-buying budgets.
