SOL: Recap Edition

In the wake of the Globe’s latest article on the difficulties Mass. libraries are facing (including word of four newly decertified libraries), I think it’s time to review where we are:

Boston: Layoffs have begun, 1 branch closed.

Boxford: Risking closure of West Boxford branch.

Brockton: Risking decertification.

Chemlsford: Risking Decertification

Dennis: $13k cut from budget

Fitchburg: Decertified, budget slashed 68%, temporarily used as a pet shelter.

Freetown: Decertified

Hubbardston: Decertified

Newton: 4 Branches closed, $89k cut from payroll.

Norton: Decertified

Pittsfield: $55k cut from budget

Springfield: 4 employees laid off

Wareham: Decertified

Winthrop: Risking Closure

I know there are plenty of other stories out there, so please share them if you have them.
