Non-Certified Municipalities & Libraries

The municipalities below are not certified for State Aid to Public Libraries. There are three reasons why a municipality and its library may not be certified:

  • its library may not have applied
  • its library may have been ineligible to apply
  • its library did not receive a waiver of the Municipal Appropriation Requirement (MAR)

Any municipality that does not have library service is automatically ineligible to apply for certification.

Municipalities that did not apply, or were ineligible, were not certified as of January 1, 2017. Municipalities that are denied a MAR waiver will be not certified as of February 2, 2017.
