Cuts Mean Fewer Library Hours, No Bookmobile

The bookmobile will be parked and hours at all D.C. libraries will be reduced starting in October because of budget cuts.

The fiscal 2010 budget slashed the library budget by $4.8 million, and residents will feel the impact next month.

All libraries will continue to be open every day but Sunday.

But we have enough money to pay for a convention center hotel! Marriott Corporation is so much more deserving of public funds than children and community members who want to use a library.

Hey! Let's park the bookmobile in front of a "Play Day" center each time there is a staff development day for teachers.
