(This amendment provides funding to be used primarily to increase digital information resources available to the public at Virginia's local public libraries. Such resources include eBooks, streaming media, audiobooks, and electronic databases. This would bring the funding level to about $210,000 less than the FY 2000 appropriation, and 62 percent of the amount required by the state's funding formula.)
