Friends Voice Opposition to Library Cuts

Thanks to everyone who contacted the Assembly to voice your opposition to potential cuts to the library’s Youth & Outreach Programs.   We were excited to hear that the Finance Committee meeting scheduled to discuss these cuts was cancelled due to lack of a quorum.  I personally received favorable responses from Assembly members, many of whom expressed that these proposed cuts did not have strong support among the membership.

I plan to attend the Assembly meeting on Monday June 5th at 7pm just in case approval of the annual budget is pulled from the consent agenda for discussion rather than approved without discussion.

The story received some press attention this week, check out the stories by KTOO and the Juneau Empire.
