Since fiscal year 2007, the libraries have had 35 full-time positions cut from the budget.  This represents a 25% reduction in full-time staff, and is a tremendous loss of expertise and institutional memory.

An additional reduction of eight more full-time positions has been suggested by the mayor and is under consideration by the city council.  Please contact the mayor and your city councilor to urge them to refrain from any further cuts to the Public Library Budget.
