Library finances got you down? Need more money to run your library? The best place to start is understanding your budget and your role in its development & implementation. Cranky taxpayers, tight funding, and a tax cap can be overcome with organizational transparency and a solid understanding of the ins-and-outs of public finance regulations. This program will answer many of your questions (and maybe some you hadn’t thought of!).
