Budget cuts will shut the Seattle libraries for a week, but a group of hardcore readers is organizing a "People's Library" to fill the void.
The People's Library [ http://duetobudgetcuts.wordpress.com/ ] wants to provide reading material, kid's activities, and Internet access to the public while the libraries are out of service.
Organizer Yates Coley tells Ross and Burbank she and her friends thought up the idea about a week ago upon learning of the library furlough from Aug. 27 through Sept. 2.
