If library is moved, access may be limited
The Orlando Sentinel has some
interesting news on The Florida State Library.
They say officials admit that, if the move is
approved by state lawmakers, no one would have
access to most of the books and records for a year or
longer. And even then, only Broward County residents
could go to the Nova library and check them out.
Jeb had argued that giving away part of the State
Library to Nova Southeastern University would make
the books and other materials more accessible to
more people in heavily populated South Florida.
Others warn that under terms of the state's
contract, the university would legally own the books and
could throw them away by 2007 if they are not used
