It’s Time to Create Secure, Independent Funding for Libraries

April 30th, 2010

The City will need to cut up to $50 million (about 5%) out of the preliminary planned budgets for 2011 and 2012. I have chosen to take oversight of the library in my Regional Development and Sustainability Committee, and hope to find a new and independent source of funding for Seattle Public Libraries, one which will take library funding out of the competition for general fund revenues.
