Public Libraries are Struggling on 2001/02 Funding
In its 2009/10 budget the State Government cut its share of funding of public libraries by 40%, back to the level of 2001/02. This was done in the face of a 16% increase in the state’s population and an almost 90% increase in State revenue.
Support the movement to turn this situation around so that public libraries can continue to do their job. Details, postcards and bumper stickers are available at any Cockburn Library and at just about any other public library.
