Suburban libraries worry about the effects of Chicago library cuts

Chicago Sun Times – “Cuts to the Chicago Public Library’s budget may reverberate through the suburbs, where many Chicago residents use local libraries through reciprocal borrowing privileges. Some suburban librarians expect those cuts, if they go through, to not only reduce the number of hours Chicago branch libraries are open, but also reduce the number of books Chicago libraries buy and the ability to get borrowed books back after Chicagoans return them. All three possibilities could affect how well also-burdened suburban libraries perform, they said.”
