Cranston Public Library: Budget Cuts May Lead to Branch Closures

Link to April 21 Providence Journal article, "Closing of library branches possible".

Excerpt:    Proposed budget cuts for the year that begins July 1 would force the Cranston Public Library to close branches and eliminate weekend and evening hours, library Director David W. Macksam said..

Already hard-hit by budget cuts last year, the library system — which operates five neighborhood branches and the central library — eliminated a day of service to absorb a $200,000 mid-year cut. Mayor Allan W. Fung has proposed cutting the library’s budget by another $203,946.
