Preserve state funding for Missouri public libraries
Sign our petition and show Gov. Jay Nixon and Missouri legislators that you support state funding of Missouri’s public libraries, and the important services those funds support.
This year Missouri’s governor is withholding money that was budgeted for public libraries serving populations over 40,000. Cass County Public Library's portion amounts to about $70,000. Some of this money is a subsidy for Internet connections and some is for state aid to libraries, which pays for materials and equipment.
What can you do to help? If you would like to urge the governor to release funds needed by public libraries, please consider taking any of these actions: Sign our petition in support, consider writing to Office of Gov. Jay Nixon, P. O. Box 720, Jefferson City, MO 65102, call the governor’s office at 573-751-3222 or go to the website www.governor.mo.gov, click “get involved” and fill out the contact form.
Thank you for helping let the governor know that these funds are important to the library users in Missouri.
