Herald: Where Will Cuts Fall At Library?

Posted in Library, municipal budget by nbpoliticus on May 17, 2011

The public library, like public education,  is a  taxpayer-supported institution with a value that isn’t easily measured on a ledger sheet.  It’s value to a community exceeds what it costs by many measures of human capital and civic involvement.  The possibility of layoffs in city government could hit the library in terms of reduced hours and diminished services that will be painful as the  Robert Storace’s May 17th story in the Herald reports.
