Klaus Graf writes "The city government of Cologne in Germany is planning to close down the renowned 'Kunst- und
Museumsbibliothek' (KMB) in the very near future! On the 22nd of May 2003 the city council will decide
what will happen with one of the biggest art libraries in Germany. The Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Kunst- und
Museumsbibliotheken (AKMB) has set up a German focus-webpage on their site to give more information
about all this, The Art Library Society of Flanders/Belgium
(OKBV) took the initiative to set up a temporary support-site so that people can also react individually to
these plans. By signing the on-line petition, you can support this art library and send some
encouragement to the people working there."
