LEONIA , N.J. — Library supporters rallied Monday in response to spending cuts proposed in Leonia's 2016 budget, reports northjersey.com.

The borough's proposed slashing of 25 percent from the library's budget drops its contribution from the anticipated $840,000 to under $615,000, reports northjersey.com.

Community backlash prompted Leonia officials to hold back the budget while other cost-savings measures are sought, reports northjersey.com.

A special meeting at 7:30 p.m. March 31 is planned in the Leonia High School's Little Theater to discuss the budget and long-term financial health of the community, reports northjersey.com.
