Cutbacks at Free Library of Philadelphia

An Anonymous Patron writes “Here are two stories about the radical reorganization at the Free Library of Philadelphia where 20 branches will be run without librarians.

This first link is to a story about a protest at the Wyoming Branch–slated to become an “express branch” or “McBranch” as us Philadelphia librarians like to call them.

The second link is to a story about 72 librarians at the Free Library sending a letter of protest to Director Elliot Shelkrot.”
