Fairfax County proposes another cut in the Public Library budget.

County budget documents released today show that the County Executive is proposing another 4.3% reduction in the budget of the Fairfax County Public Library for FY 2015.  Currently, the library's budget is $28.9 million in FY 2014 while the advertised budget for FY 2015 is $1.2 million less at $27.7 million.  There are no proposed cuts in overall library staffing although some departmental shifts.

Apparently the County Executive is tone deaf to the serious damage the County continues to do to its public library system.
