Public Library Accreditation or Criteria for Funding in Other States
This is not a complete list. Many states have not yet responded to TSLAC's request for this information.
Libraries appear to receive higher state aid if accredited
See also this background document:
"New York's minimum standards for public libraries are outlined in Commissioner's Regulations...and the authority for the State Education Department/State Library to create such minimum standards is in Education Law.
Our minimum standards do have significance, as a public library that does not meet them is not eligible for registration (licensing) and therefore, not eligible to receive local or state public funds."
