The New York Library Association, in partnership with Libby Post of
Communication Services, has created an Online Advocacy website to aid
local efforts to prevent a $4 million cut in funding to the Buffalo &
Erie County Public Library that will result in the layoff of more than
100 library staff and a drastic reduction in operating hours and
services to the 900,000 people who live in Erie County.
If you are a resident of Erie County, I urge you to go
http://voteyesforourlibrary.org/eriebuffalo/ and send an email to
your county legislator to ask them to reject the County Executive’s
proposed $4 million cut.
Please forward this to any friends or colleagues who live in Erie
County. Thank you for your assistance.
