No Cuts to our budget!

We were told we would have to cut our budget by 18% next FY.

However, at the budget meeting last week, one commissioner stood up and defended the library.

"Studies show that for every $1 in budget spent on the Library, the community benefits by about $6 in services. So I motion that the Library be held 'harmless' and all proposed cuts be put BACK into the Library budget."

Motion was seconded and carried without dissent.

However, no increases, either. But we'll take what we can get!

"The Director"
