(a) No political subdivision of this State shall be party to a library agreement which
provides for the construction or maintenance of a library pursuant to Article III,
subdivision (c)(7) of the Compact, nor pledge its credit in support of such a library,
or contribute to the capital financing thereof, except after compliance with any laws
applicable to such political subdivisions relating to or governing capital outlays
and the pledging of credit.
(b) As used in the Compact, “State library agency,” with reference to this State, means the Maryland State Library Agency.
(c) An interstate library district lying partly within this State may claim and be
entitled to receive State aid in support of any of its functions to the same extent
and in the same manner as such functions are eligible for support when carried on
by entities wholly within this State. For the purposes of computing and apportioning State aid to an interstate library
district, this State will consider that portion of the area which lies within this
State as an independent entity for the performance of the aided function or functions
and compute and apportion the aid accordingly. Subject to any applicable laws of this State, such a district also may apply for
and be entitled to receive any federal aid for which it may be eligible.
(d) The State Librarian shall be the compact administrator pursuant to Article X of
the Compact. The State Library Board on the recommendation of the State Librarian may appoint
one or more deputy compact administrators pursuant to said article.
(e) In the event of withdrawal from the Compact the Governor shall send and receive
any notices required by Article XI(b) of the Compact.
