No surprise that "Morale and everything is terrible right now" at West Virginia's Martinsburg-Berkeley County Public Libraries

Berkeley Co. library system eliminates five positions, cuts operating hours to absorb cuts.  (Herald-Mail, 5/29/2015)

And as a result:
  • Hours of operations cut
    • Martinsburg:  64 hours per week/7 days to 44 hours per week/5 days
    • Branches;  45-48 hours per week/6 days to 32 hours per week/4 days
  • Number of programs reduced
  • 5 fulltime position eliminated
  • 2 fulltime positions reduced to part-time (benefits lost)
  • Part-time staff reduced to 20 from 32
