Five speakers addressed county supervisors Monday evening, asking that the proposed $7,700 cut to the library’s budget for the upcoming year be restored. Library director Rhonda Griffin, after thanking supervisors for their financial support, explained that the local cut would trigger a $3,080 loss in matching state aid, thereby creating an overall loss of $10,780. Griffin said the cut would eliminate funds for large print books and audio products. She also pointed to the library’s large increase in computer use and the fact that the library has partnered with the Higher Education Center to work with its students. With the economy in a downturn, she said use of the library continues to increase. “People are no longer buying books, they come to the library to check them out,” she said.
