The MidHudson Library System has created a second edition of the classic Chapter 414 handbook: Inch by Inch, Row by Row: Implementing Chapter 414 of New York State’s 1995 laws, the “local votes law” for public libraries: http://midhudson.org/trustee/414mhls.pdf
Chapter 414 of the laws of 1995 in New York State allows libraries – in particular – municipal and association libraries the opportunity to put their budget up for a public vote.
New for the 2nd Edition:
– Expanded Q&A section
– Timeline & Suggested Activities tied to the MHLS Getting to Yes Project’s Public Library Vote Toolbox [http://midhudson.org/vote/default.htm]
– Municipal Communications
– Petition Tips
– Sample FAQ list for the public
– Challenges to the Law & Outcomes
This second edition of Inch by Inch, Row by Row is an expansion of a document created by the Southern Adirondack Library System.
