This document presents information about library financial support for 1996 and New York State library services. The Governor's budget recommendation for 1996-97 library aid is provided following a summary of New York State statistics for public, academic, school, and special libraries, including the New York State Library. Objectives of the Regents 1996 Three-Part Legislative Program for libraries are then identified as follows: (1) full funding of current state aid law; (2) aid for electronic doorway library services; and (3) full participation of libraries and systems in a comprehensive telecommunications program for education. Next, the state support requested for public, reference and research, and school library systems is presented according to region. The Electronic Doorway Library Services Bill is then described and the support requested for electronic doorway library services is identified. The needs of state library services are discussed and comparisons are made for fiscal years 1990-1995. A summary of state support requested for full funding of current state aid law for public, reference and research, school, and social libraries is provided with a grant total for all libraries; the same is presented for library systems in the Electronic Doorway Library Services Bill.
