Drastic cuts in county library services threatened

Upshot of yesterday’s press conference on proposed Jefferson-Madison Regional Library budget cuts (pdf):

  • Albemarle County requests service reductions but finds Scottsville and Crozet branch closures unpalatable.
  • J-MRL board vows not to “swallow” a reduction of services below the level provided in other Virginia counties.
  • Albemarle citizens, if you want to save your libraries, now is the time to contact your county supervisors.

Our library funding is complicated by the financial relationship between the city and the county. For more information, contact the Board of Supervisors or the library.
