Library cutbacks announced

\"After years of belt tightening, the state\'s public library system on March 30 will close the book for good on some much-loved services in a move that portends further changes.\"

\"The four Bookmobiles — on O\'ahu, the Big Island, Maui and Moloka\'i — will cease their longtime traveling library operations. All libraries will be restricted to operating no more than 40 hours per week, causing some of the larger libraries to cut 10 or 20 hours from their schedules.\"

\"To trim electricity, security and other costs, no library will be open for more than five days per week.\" (from The Honolulu Advisor)
