Lean state library might be leaner still

"Already operating with fewer books, employees and dollars, the Washington State Library is facing more budget cuts — and this time, some valuable federal papers are at stake."

"Gov. Gary Locke's 2003-05 budget proposes to severely cut the library, which took a big hit last year but avoided closure. The Senate's adjustments to the current budget, the supplemental budget, call for cuts to the library before June 30." (from Seattle Times)
