The Los Angeles Public Library Crisis - And what you can do to help!

Young Adult Librarian and Librarians' Guild Representative Henry Gambill was kind enough to talk to me yesterday about what's at stake in the current budget crisis facing LA... and how our Library system is on the edge of disaster!

Help us save the library. Time is of the essence - the city council meeting discussing this is happening on Tuesday March 16, and the mayor submits his budget on March 20th. That's not much time to change the library's dismal future.

Thanks, everyone.

Thanks so much for your help in getting the word out about the threat to our libraries. The Library accounts for only 3.5% of the City's general fund. If libraries were closed altogether, it still wouldn't come close to solving the budget problems - and yet, the planned cuts could do real and permanent harm to LAPL.
