The State of the State

It’s a new year, but it’s not one that’s off to a particularly good start.  Govenor Patrick has announced that Massachusetts is looking at another $1 billion in cuts. The first batch of cuts were fairly painless, with the exception of those to higher education, which got gutted fairly drastically.  But the Govenor is saying that local aid is on the table for the next round.

Now many libraries throughout the state are already struggling with reduced budgets, and we’re still 6 months away from finding out what the new fiscal year will bring.  Dark times are ahead, so everyone keep your fingers crossed.
