In NSW, funding for public libraries is at a crisis point!
Libraries are more than books – they are part of a valuable centres of information, of knowledge and of community.
Yearly visits to NSW public libraries have increased from 27 million in 2000 to over 35 million in 2017, but State recurrent funding has not increased to match demand and was in fact, slashed by 5% in the recent 2018 NSW Budget.
Did you know that NSW makes the lowest contribution of total funding to its public libraries of every state in Australia? At just 7.8% of total funding, NSW is far behind Victoria (18%) and Queensland (12%).
