Stand up for our libraries!
Today’s libraries are more than books – they are valuable centres to access information and knowledge, to meet new people and learn new skills.
But after 40 years of underinvestment, NSW public libraries face a funding crisis, even as demand for services grows.
To make sure libraries remain at the heart of our community in the future, we need to resource them well today.
But the NSW Government is not contributing its fair share.
Funding has not kept up with demand and our public libraries are struggling to provide the services our community needs.
Despite recent funding announcements, local councils shoulder the burden of over 90 percent of total funding for public libraries, with no guarantee of sustainable funding in the future.
Together we can build a movement demand action and funding commitments from all political parties in the lead up to the 2019 NSW Election.
Join thousands of people across NSW to call for increased investment in our public libraries.
