Steve Fesenmaier passed along this note from Mitch Freedman, who says This is the worst financial situation in my memory for libraries around
the country, and the communities and states in the U.S. ALA is gearing
up this campaign to make the public aware of the impact of funding
cutbacks on libraries:
\"This weekend the Wall Street Journal Report will have a segment on the
funding cuts for America\'s libraries. It is a syndicated show, so the
time it is broadcast locally varies. Consult your local newspaper or TV
schedule. In the New York City area the show will be broadcast on NBC,
Channel 4, at 6:30AM.
I\'ve been told by the CNBC people who came out for to the Ardsley (NY)
Public Library to film the library\'s interior, patrons, & myself that
there would probably be a few sound bites from the Ardsley visit, as
well as the other places & people they filmed, and the whole segment
would probably be in the neighborhood of 5 minutes or so.
