About New Yorkers for Better Libraries The New Yorkers for Better Libraries Political Action Committee was established in 2003 by library leaders who believe that there is a need to supplement the library community’s advocacy efforts with campaign contributions directed toward those in Albany who can really help libraries. Beginning in 2010, the New Yorkers for Better Libraries PAC initiated a program of legislative accountability.

Statement Concerning Legislative Accountability The following letter was mailed to each member of the New York State Legislature in February, 2010: The New Yorkers for Better Libraries Political Action Committee (NYLIBS-PAC) was formed eight years ago by library advocates who believe that state support for library services is essential to all New Yorkers. We are very disappointed that libraries have received four cuts in state aid in the past 21 months, with a fifth cut now under consideration. These reductions have sent state aid for libraries back to the same level received in 1998. We understand that New York State is experiencing financial difficulties and are aware that many vital services must sustain cuts. However, there has to be some equity in this process: libraries have been cut disproportionately when compared to other state services. The state budget has increased by 82% over the past ten years. Libraries did not benefit from this. In the past six years, school aid has increased by 47% and aid to municipalities has increased by 62%, but library aid has reverted to the dollar amount received a dozen years ago.

A core recipient of state aid are our library systems, which serve all types of libraries and are the backbone for the collaborative efforts and resource sharing programs that make libraries one of the most cost-effective services provided to the public. NYLIBS-PAC has determined that there is a need for greater accountability concerning state legislators’ actions on issues of importance to the library community and the millions of library users and voters throughout the state. Effective this Legislative Session, the NYLIBS-PAC will begin to track library-related state legislation and will publish a report card/voters guide concerning each state legislator’s degree of support for libraries. Sponsorship and co-sponsorship of legislation, votes on library legislation and funding will be the primary indicators that the PAC will assess. This report card will be distributed to libraries throughout the state, the media and the general public. We look forward to working with you during this Legislative Session to address the needs of New York’s libraries.

Bill Summaries Restore Library Aid Cuts in 2010-2011 State Budgets (funding not restored) In spite of an outpouring of public support for libraries, the NYS Legislature chose to take yet another bite out of state aid to libraries this summer. This 3.8% cut comes on the heels of four prior cuts over the last two years that represent an aggregated reduction of 19% and an actual loss of more than $38 million. On the positive side, the state’s allocation of $14 million for public library construction, which comes from the sale of bonds, was not reduced.

Cooperative Bidding for Public Libraries and Library Systems (Signed Into law – Chapter 385) This legislation (S.3903 Oppenheimer/A.6154 Paulin) adds public libraries and library systems to list of public entities, like cities, towns, villages, BOCES, school districts, that are allowed to engage in cooperative bidding. Cooperative bidding saves library systems, libraries and taxpayer money by pooling resources to purchase services and products.

Tax –Check off to Support Summer Reading (Vetoed #6754) This bill ( S.7551 Oppenheimer/A.7253 Galef)would allow state personal and corporate income tax payers to make contribution to “Love Your Library Fund” which supports the statewide Summer Reading Program.

BOCES-Libraries Internet Partnerships (Passed Senate 3/15 – Held in Assembly Ways & Means 6/16) This bill (S.4634 Oppenheimer/A.8673 Gunther) would authorize BOCES to contract with public libraries or library systems for internet services. By allowing libraries these partnerships, libraries can offer higher speed internet access at a lower cost to their patrons.

Bill Summaries Public Library Systems Eligible for Local Government Efficiency Grants (Passed Senate 6/3 – Held in Assembly Ways & Means 4/20) The bill (S.6875A Oppenheimer/A.10412 Bing) would expand eligibility to apply for local government efficiency grants to include public library systems. Currently libraries, but not library systems, are allowed to apply. Library systems engage in a variety of cooperative and shared-service arrangements that could benefit from this program and therefore further save their libraries and taxpayers money.

Public Library Construction Grants (Held in Assembly Ways & Means – No Action in Senate) This legislation (S.4248 Aubertine/A.6155 Paulin) would modify the public library construction grant program to enable grants to be used to purchase vacant land as well as lower local match to 25% of project costs for libraries in high need areas. Many public libraries around the state cannot afford the current match of 50% towards a construction project and therefore have limited access to these funds.

Cultural Education Fund (Held in Senate Rules 6/15 – Held in Assembly Ways & Means 7/1) The bill (S.3640A Oppenheimer/A.6783A Englebright) would replenish the fund that supports the operations of the NewYork State Library, Museum and Archives by raising the filing fees that local governments and courts charge from $15 to $22.50. The fund has been depleted due to the downturn in the economy and previous sweepings of the fund to support other state operations.
