Library Cutbacks Start Next Month

According to IBJ.com, the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library will close the Central Library on Thursdays and reduce hours at all branches by a collective 26 percent to help reduce a projected $4 million revenue shortfall next year, it announced Tuesday.

The cutback in hours, effective 3 October, should help save about $1.5 million and keep all branches open in 2011, library officials said.

Of course, this is at the same time the city is giving the Pacers $1.6 million for a new scoreboard. (see this)

Why is this Indianapolis Observer not surprised?

What's more important to Indy, after all!
