How would this $50,000 funding cut affect me?
To summarize, this cut would affect everyone who uses the library, and those who take advantage of our off-site programs and participation in community events.
Specifically, the following would be curtailed for ALL Upper Nazareth Township residents, and reduced for every other patron:
- Materials such as (but not limited to) books, newspapers, magazines, DVDs, etc.
