Excerpt: The Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library could close as many as six branches this year.
Closing those branches and laying off workers would turn a budget deficit into a slight surplus, according to a report presented on Thursday to a committee of the library board.
A proposal released today by the board's finance committee calls for closing the Glendale, Brightwood, Flanner House, Fountain Square, Spades Park [one of two remaining Carnegie libraries in the system] and West Indianapolis [first total self-check branch: 2004] branches to eliminate a budget deficit. The library has 22 branches plus the Downtown's Central Library, which opened in a new building in December 2007, and 700 employees.
