Final Budget Hearing

From Margaret Roach, Volunteer Services Manager:

While the Library System has maintained hours and staff, the book budget has been severely decreased—by over 46% in the last two years. As the Library Bond Program brings new libraries on board, it is critical that the operating budget not fall behind. Your advocacy for continued support of the Library System is essential. In tough economic times, citizens need libraries more than ever!
