The Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library may decide to close six of the the system's 22 branches in an effort to close a widening budget gap, reports the Indianapolis Business Journal. The six are Glendale, Brightwood, Flanner House, Fountain Square, Spades Park and West Indianapolis.
The library plans to hold focus group discussions and staff forums to gather feedback on the cost-cutting options, reports the IBJ. Public forums are planned for 6:30 p.m. 10 and 12 May at the Library Services Center, 2450 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis. The board is expected to make a decision in June.
