22 Pa. Code § 131.71. Termination of aid to a local library.


§ 131.71. Termination of aid to a local library.

 A local library shall cease to qualify for State aid for either of the following reasons:

   (1)  If, in the sixth year of participation in State aid, the local financial effort has not reached a sum equal to or exceeding $.0005 times market value, or $2 per capita, whichever is less. State aid will not be restored until such time as the local financial effort does reach or exceed $.0005 times market value, or $2 per capita, whichever is less.

   (2)  If, after 6 years from the first payment of State aid, a local library is unable to achieve the applicable standards of service because its required local financial effort plus State aid is insufficient. Continuation of State aid in such cases shall be subject to the approval by the State Librarian of an extension of time in which to reach the applicable standards, as provided in section 304 of The Library Code (24 P.S. §  4304).

   (Editor’s Note: The Library Code (24 P.S. § §  4101—4503) was repealed by the act of November 1, 2012 (P.L. 1683, No. 210) and replaced by 24 Pa.C.S. Chapter 93 (relating to Public Library Code).)


   The provisions of this §  131.71 adopted March 29, 1962.
