Increase state funding for public libraries: Sign the petition; Request the stickers

Public libraries are a vital community service. But the NSW Government’s contribution to library funding hasn’t kept pace with rising costs, which has seen the burden shift across to local government. Councils now contribute more than 90% of the funding for public libraries; thirty years ago, their contribution was around three-quarters.
