Greetings Library Directors:
The Governor released his Recommended Budget for the 2015-2017 biennium this morning and I wanted to share a couple of items with you:

*         A recommended  increase of  $139,769 in the Ready to Read/Reading for Success grant program that will expand the program to include 15-17 years olds and raise the minimum grant to $1,200.

*         Shift a State Library Specialist  1 position from donation funding to general fund

As most of you know, the next step will be to present our budget request to the Legislature. We will do that before a subcommittee of the Joint Ways and Means Committee during the regular Legislative session coming up in 2015.

This is a great improvement over the Governor's Recommended Budget for the State Library in  2013-2015. I appreciate all the support the State Library has received from the library community.
I will keep you posted as we move through the budget process.

Please contact me if you have questions or concerns.


Full Recommended Budget is available at: http://www.oregon.gov/gov/priorities/pages/budget.aspx  State Library is on page I 335
