Budget Cuts Silence Audio Book Program in British Columbia


From the North Shore News:

In the past 18 years, Elizabeth Nash has listened to 4,000 audiobooks. \"I\'m a big user,\" she confides. \"My life depends on them.\"

The West Vancouver resident has only peripheral vision. \"I can\'t read a book or read my mail or write a cheque - but I listen to about six hours of tapes a day.\"

So Nash was less than impressed when the Liberals slashed the B.C. Library Services\' audiobooks program as part of their civil service cuts last week . . .
