One thought on “Library use?

  1. Marta

    The Atlantic’s story totally makes sense, especially the issue of hours being cut.

    I did a quick search at Library Journal for “libraries closed branches or reduced hours” yields more than 1,000 stories about layoffs, branch closures, reduced hours or the restoration of hours after a city or county has recovered from the recession. The number of libraries closed in some urban areas is staggering.

    FYI, Library Journal’s online archives are about 5 years old, so my search doesn’t include all the cuts in 2008 and 2009. There are a number of libraries around the country that cut hours at branches.
