Libraries, Schools Follow Budget Talks|abc27 News

Last week abc27 visited Fredricksen Library in Camp Hill to interview us on how the proposed state budgets might affect library services.

Our situation is very serious. Under the worst scenario proposed to date, the Cumberland County Library System would lose more than $750,000 in direct state payments, plus about $250,000 in state subsidized services like the summer reading program, POWER library databases for students, interlibrary delivery and online reference service.

Two library patrons, James Alton and John Barns, were also interviewed about how the budget cuts might affect their library use.
