Nashville Public Library might be absorbing the Public School Libraries.

It all started last Thursday with a press conference by Nashville Mayor announcing his intention to merge the public library and the public school libraries. Then the School Board claimed they were unaware of his intentions until he held his press conference. There's a turf war brewing between the schools and the Mayor's office. Not sure anyone knows what is actually going on but there have been some interesting articles popping up. <a href="http://www.ala.org/ala/alonline/currentnews/newsarchive/2008/November2008/nashvillelibrarymerger.cfm">From American Libraries</a>, <a href="http://www.libraryjournal.com/article/CA6616797.html?desc=topstory">From LJ</a>, <a href="http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2008811220377">From the Tennessean</a>.
