SOL: Westfield Athenaeum

July 21, 2009

MassLive is reporting that the Westfield Athenaeum (one of the greatest libraries in Western Mass.) has suffered a $50,000 budget cut and is being forced to institute a one day a month furlough.  Good luck to everyone at the other Athenaeum during these times.

The wave of library fiscal disasters has  turned toward my Southern neighbor.  Governor Rell has proposed a cut upwards of $5 million to libraries across the state.  The Connecticut Library Association is organizing the protest on this one.

S.O.L.: June Edition

June 23, 2009

A few more distress calls have gone out this week.  

In local news the Lawrence Library in Pepperell is facing closure pending the results of an override vote on the 29th.  The town’s Senior and Community Centers are also at risk of losing their funding, so things are not looking to good in Pepperell.

Then there’s Ohio, where libraries are at risk of losing half their funding state wide.  A great site’s been put together for sharing information and organizing supporters.

Best of luck everyone
