Council panel wants to help Jacksonville libraries, worries how to pay for it

“Jacksonville’s library system got a tiny glimmer of hope Friday that Jacksonville’s City Council might prevent the worst of a series of proposed budget cuts. But the same day, council auditors warned the city’s finances looked tighter than Mayor Alvin Brown’s staff had described earlier and said some savings that were forecast this month seemed too optimistic. That could erase any hopes for shoring up library services, now slated to lose both hours open and money for materials when the 2013 budget year starts Oct. 1.”
