Aldermen decry proposed library cuts, offer few solutions

Chicago Tribune – “Citing the library’s importance to education and community gathering, Chicago aldermen on Friday spent three hours voicing their opposition to Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s proposal to cut library staff and hours, though few had suggestions on how to fill the city’s budget gap. “They serve the young, the old, all ethnicities,” Ald. Ariel Reboyras, 30th, said of the libraries. “I believe the proposed cuts will affect our most vulnerable, our working-class poor.”
