Jacksonville main library may have to close on Saturdays due to budget cuts

“Jacksonville’s Main Library will close on Saturdays beginning in October unless the City Council restores funding in the pending 2013-14 budget. The library Board of Trustees in a unanimous vote Thursday approved the closure, calling it a difficult decision between less-than desirable options. “We don’t want to see access to any library reduced,” board Chairwoman Brenda Simmons-Hutchins said after the meeting. “The board’s decision today was our response to the difficult situation we are facing in losing eight hours of operations at the Main Library.” (via Florida Times Union)
