Four Years of Flat Funding Results in a Loss of Monday Hours @ the Hudson Area Library

Library will be closed Mondays to save money. (Hudson Star-Observer, 12/20/2012)

The Hudson Area Library will be open 43 hours per week in 2013, down from 50 in 2012.

In another money-saving measure, the library will outsource the cataloging of library materials to Indianhead Federated Library System.

The text in the following slide is from the Star-Observer article.  (The title is Retiring Guy's.)

It certainly would be helpful to know what's being formulated.

A 'Limbo Rock' formulation, perhaps.  How low do they want to go?

$21.78.  Hudson Area Library per capita support 2011.

$40.81.  Average Wisconsin resident per capita support for all public libraries 2011.

[Both figures are from the Wisconsin Public Library Service Data.]
