Help!

August 12th, 2014 · Comments Off

YHPL still needs your help.  We’ve been busy since June collecting signatures needed to place a library funding proposition on the ballot in the Town of Union this November to increase funding for the Johnson City & Endicott libraries.  We need about another 1,000 more signatures by the end of August, and right now it’s looking like a long shot.  About 90% of the funding for these two libraries comes from a special assessment in the Town of Union.  They receive no direct funding from the Village of JC, the Village of Endicott, the Town of Union, or Broome County and have not had a funding increase since the last vote in 2008.  We really do not want to return to the dark days of reduced hours and cuts in our book, programming, and computer budgets.  Sadly that’s the prospect if we cannot get the community to step up.  If you are a registered voter in the Town of Union you can sign the petition (if you’re not registered we have copies of the voter registration form!).  You can even get a copy of the petition at the library and ask your family and friends to sign; or ask them to drop by the library to do so.  The clock is ticking on quality library service in this community.  If you value it please do your part.
