Four library branches to close in Merced County

“The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to close four small library branches at the request of the county librarian and other staff, who said it’s the only way to keep the library system going. The supervisors voted to shut down the George library in south Merced, and Cressey, South Dos Palos and Stevinson libraries, replacing them with the county Bookmobile. Board Chairman and District 5 Supervisor Jerry O’Banion voted against the branch closures. “We had difficulties with libraries and I voted to close the library,” O’Banion said of a decision to shut all county libraries in the early ’90s. “I swore to never close a library again and I intend to keep that promise.” (via Modesto Bee)
