Mayor Bloomberg’s budget ax will prune key public library branches

NY Daily News – “Nothing is sacred in these tough economic times. Schools, hospitals, the Metropolitan Transit Authority could all be victims of Mayor Bloomberg’s sharp budget ax. Nearly all city agencies are feeling the pain – 20 fire companies are on the block, as are dozens of senior centers. Some 11,000 city workers could be laid off. Not even a deserving institution like the city’s library system would be spared from the devastating proposed budget cuts. A case in point, the award-winning Queens Library – an essential resource for many thousands of New Yorkers – would be severely slashed.”
