Monday library service? Not!

Today was the first day in the LA Public Library's history that every branch and Central was closed on a non-holiday. And this is the way it's going to be for the foreseeable future - no Monday service. Naturally, LA is not going to take this lying down:

The LA Weekly reported on the protest, as well.

  1. I was just going to ask if they were closed on Sundays. That is terrible! Our library asked about closing on Wend. but they are open 7 days a week so I guess I can see that. What I don't understand with my library system is that they got a grant used it on new tables, chairs and computers (which were just replaced 3 years ago) and now they say they can't pay people or get new books. The renovations costs way more then the salary of 5 people so I don't really know what to think of that. Poor overall spending I'm assuming.
