State Funding For Missouri's Public Libraries
On April 3rd Governor Nixon announced the release of $43 million of withheld funds from the 2014-2015 budget, including the remaining amount of State Aid to Local Libraries, $2,780,225, and the full amount of the Remote Access for Local Libraries (Internet Access) - $3,109,250. We thank those who joined the petition drive to support state funding for libraries in Missouri.
The Missouri Legislature is currently working on the budget for 2015-2016. Both have included $723,776 in State Aid to Local Libraries. The House has proposed $3.1 million for the REAL program (Internet access for libraries) - the same as in 2014-2015, whereas the Senate has set this at $0. The loss of the REAL funding would threaten the ability of Missouri libraries to provide free, high speed internet access to its patrons, particular in rural areas, such as Henry County.
Henry County is in:
Senate District 31 - Senator Ed Emery
Representative District 57 - Representative Wanda Brown

Neighbors Helping Teachers
Calling all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and interested individuals. We have a project for you. It's easy, cheap and environmentally correct. The Henry County Library will be participating in the Neighbors Helping Teachers efforts by becoming a drop off point for supply donations. Many area teachers have experienced funding cuts to their budgets. These cuts impact the amount and variety of classroom supplies available for use by the students. Recycle those empty tissue/paper towel rolls, pill bottles, Pringles cans, string, beads, craft supplies, fabric remnants or envelopes of any size.
The Neighbors Helping Teachers group was formed to provide school educators of Henry and St. Clair Counties in Missouri with supplemental resources for their students and classrooms. Educators are welcome to "shop" for free, the 1st Saturday of every month from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the old Samaritan Center, located on Center Street in Clinton. Faculty/Staff ID's are required, unless a district does not have them and then names will be checked against a list held by Neighbors Helping Teachers.
A full list of the supplies needed for the classrooms will be displayed at the Henry County Library main building and at the Lenora Blackmore Branch in Windsor. Donations will be accepted anytime during regular business hours.
Should you like to volunteer with the Neighbor Helping Teachers or have additional questions the contact number for the group is 660-885-1607 or Email to email@example.com.
