Leonia Public Library – Facts & Figures

Americans believe that a decent community needs public libraries like ours and they've been traditionally willing to pay for them. In that spirit, the Borough of Leonia has generously supported the library. But recently municipal budgets have become very tight, and the Leonia Library has cooperated with the Borough to cut costs, drastically and painfully. It is operating on an austerity budget. This situation inspired the revival in 2010 of the Friends of the Leonia Library, spearheaded by a new generation of Leonians, quite technologically savvy, who highly value the library and respect its dedication to public service.
