It’s doubtful that anyone could have predicted that the state of Pennsylvania would still be without a budget in mid-September. The potential compromise announced over the weekend does not seem to be the end of the struggle either. PaLA, the Pennsyvania Library Association which is monitoring the situation for libraries statewide, believes that the situation in Harrisburg is still very, very uncertain.

Join library supporters across the township and the state to keep libraries open and functioning. Click here for more information on the situation and for names and addressess.
