CARLI Budget Reduction Beginning July 1, 2015

While there is no final information available about the state budget at this time, CARLI was directed to model a 20% permanent budget reduction in operating expenses beginning July 1, 2015.

Rather than make cuts to our most critical programs, we are instead limiting initial reductions to current programs and services that will have a less severe effect on the patrons of member libraries in FY16.
