The County Administrator is Proposing Closure of 4 Libraries
Although there is over $18 million in the 2015 bond package for new libraries and expansions, the County Administrator is proposing closure of 4 libraries, claiming we can't maintain operations and maintenance at these locations. Two of these libraries, Dusenberry-River & Catalina-Dewhirst, are in District 1.
I am against the closure of our libraries and believe they are a valuable resource for the entire community. Effective this month, Dusenberry-River will be closed on Sundays along with 7 other library branches throughout the County; the Board will further discuss the possibility of library closures at the May 19th meeting .
