Guest essay: Give New York’s libraries their due

“New York state library advocates from Niagara Falls to Montauk Point are not happy with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s 4.7 percent cut to library aid for the 2014-15 fiscal year. This proposal is particularly troublesome, highlighted by the fact that he is also proposing significant new tax cuts for wealthy New Yorkers and at the same time, boasting about New York state operating at a surplus.No explanation was provided by the governor’s office for this undeserved reduction in library aid.” (via Democrat and Chronicle)
