Goodbye, State Funding for California Libraries

Libraries around San Francisco have state fundings cuts. Libraries will no longer be giving literacy programs nor InterLibrary Loans. They will no longer be buying as many books, and Library Training Programs. 1999-2000 Libraries were getting $56.8 million but buy 2008-2009 $ 12.9 million. 2012 libraries get nothing.

This is a major problem for not only librarians but for people who can only get their books at the library. I get my books online so this is not a major problem personally, but for most people it is. Even if I do not get my books at the library, it is still a good thing to have them around.
