§ 131.12. Percentage State aid to county libraries.
(a) A local library which is financed all or in part by a county government shall be eligible to receive up to $8,000 in State aid on a percentage basis as provided in section 303(2) of The Library Code (24 P.S. § 4303(2)). To receive percentage State aid, no specific minimum income from the county government is required, but only those funds appropriated by the county government may be counted.
(b) A formula for the amount of percentage State aid is set forth in section 303(2) of The Library Code, which also provides that no library receiving State aid prior to and at time of approval of The Library Code shall receive less State aid as a result of the provisions therein.
(c) Percentage State aid may be granted to only one library to which the county government has appropriated funds and has delegated the responsibility of providing public library service to the residents of the county not otherwise served.
(Editors Note: The Library Code (24 P.S. § § 41014503) was repealed by the act of November 1, 2012 (P.L. 1683, No. 210) and replaced by 24 Pa.C.S. Chapter 93 (relating to Public Library Code).)
