To offset budget cuts, Tacoma Public Library branches in East, Central and South Tacoma may lose materials but gain literacy and career-training programs.

Four of the system\'s sleepiest libraries - King, Mottet, South Tacoma and Swan Creek - would devote more space and materials to themes such as literacy or computers and drop some of their collections aimed at the general public.
