Newark and Trenton Public Libraries Teetering On the Brink

The NJLA has an editorial which says that Newark's mayor has found some monies to fund a few more months of limited library services before the doors of four Newark city libraries must be closed due to steep state aid cuts. The editorial goes on to say that Friends of the Trenton Free Public Library are vigorously fund raising to try to mitigate the dire effects of state aid cuts on staff and services in the state capital. Trenton Friends are appealing for community support.

Maybe the Friends of Matawan Aberdeen Public Library should make token donations to the Newark and Trenton library systems to help keep them open? It would only be a gesture, but maybe it would send a message to the governor and show support for fellow libraries?

Be sure to make the MAPL Friends blog a favorite place on your computer.
