Stop State Library Cuts
The NSW Government has cut $5.2 million from our already underfunded local libraries potentially forcing them to reduce library staff, cut branch opening hours, as well as reduce collections and community programs.
The way this Liberal-National Government has taken a sledgehammer to our local libraries is senseless at a time when NSW already has the lowest level of state government contributions of any state or territory in Australia!
Public libraries are a source of lifelong education and one of any community’s greatest assets.
The NSW Government should be investing in our libraries, not hitting them with more cuts!
