This afternoon we received a call from a survey company working, we understood, for the City. Their questions were about what to do when we run out of money to run our libraries — what library services should be cut? Or should a branch be closed? No choices we allowed for a higher budget for libraries.
Am I so completely out of the loop? I had no idea City Council was considering cutting library services or closing branches. Where has been the genuine public consultation (rather just a quick telephone survey) on a matter so important?
