I hope so. I sell library books for a living. The current economic stimulus package will add an additional 98 billion to education. The budget last year was somewhere around 120 billion so that's an extremely significant amount. Millions of teachers didn't even receive raises this year because the tax revenue was too low to support it. Here in San Antonio, 1 district is closing 6 schools to save money.
I hope it goes through, I'd LOVE to get that additional income to the libraries
