LEONIA, N.J. -- The Leonia Library could lose 25 percent of its funds if the borough council pushes through budget cuts to make the state-mandated 2 percent tax levy cap, reports northjersey.com.

The majority of the library's approximate $875K budget comes from the borough, which in the past has appropriated double the state requirement, reports northjersey.com.

Without the money, Library Director Matthew Latham said programs would be slashed beyond recognition, reports northjersey.com.

The borough has made cuts in all departments over the years and reduced staff in order to keep the tax levy down, reports northjersey.com.
