State Librarian: Book Festival proceeds despite state budget problems

“Without direct state government funding, the Louisiana Book Festival relied on federal funds, private donors, some tourism marketing money and a lot of volunteer help. The downtown Baton Rouge event was canceled in 2010 as state funding dried up amid state budget woes. The popular festival resumed in 2011 with help from the Louisiana Library Foundation and Friends of the Library.” (via The New Orleans Advocate)
