A last check with the Legislative Fiscal Analyst for Education revealed the
final figures for the Education Budget line item for "school library books and
electronic resources" appropriated in the 2011 session for next year.
Contrary to my earlier report, instead of appropriating $400,000 in ongoing
funding and $200,000 in one-time-only money, the Legislature actually
appropriated $500,000 in ongoing (exactly what we asked for) and $200,000 in
The correct total is $700,000!
It's still not a lot of money, but it shows that, more than ever, legislators
are aware of school libraries and value the program enough to increase
funding. Now we need to build on this year's success.
