Does it sometimes feel as if State Aid for Libraries is a mystery until it pops out of the oven on April 1st each year? Would you like to know more about how the cake is baked? What’s in the mix? When are good times to add yeast and turn up the heat? In this noontime webinar we’ll explore:

  • How the economy affects the size of the State’s revenue pie each year;
  • How the State funding pie is sliced and where Libraries fit in;
  • Following the State Budget Calendar to time and target advocacy;
  • Finding State Library Aid in the Governor’s Proposed Operating and Capital Budgets;
  • Following the Legislative process – timing and importance of Senate and Assembly “one-house” budget resolutions
  • Quickly finding the result in the Adopted Budget Bills
