how does budget affect libraries?

The proposed State budget includes provisions that would sharply impact Wisconsin’s libraries.

  • 10% reduction in funding to library systems

  • Elimation of the Maintance of Effort requirement for cities,villages and counties

  • Levy limits held to 0% or rate of local construction

  • Reductions in shared revenue affecting local government budgets

If passed, these provisions could lead to changes in library services.
