Charles Davis points out Washington Post Story that says library hours throughout the
District might be cut during
weekdays, and all but one library
would be closed Saturdays under a
plan that cuts $905,000 from the library budget.
Things are worse in Cinci, where Five library branches will be closed and improvements at others will be put on hold because of cutbacks in state funding. The closings will save $1.5 million annually. They are a response to not getting $4.3 million in state funding expected as part of the system\'s $52.5 million annual budget.
Cleveland County Memorial will be laying off workers, cutting hours and it\'ll stop buying new books.
I hate it when I focus on just negative stories, but they all made it in this morning at about the same time.
