Carborro Branch Library Feeling Pain over Cuts

The branch's temporary staff budget was reduced by about 62 percent, roughly the same amount cut from Cedar Grove Branch Library and the Carrboro Cybrary, according to the 2008-09 budget approved by the county last month. The central library, the Orange County Public Library, saw a cut of nearly 27 percent in temporary staff.

"I understand the problem," said Catherine DeVine of Friends of the Carrboro Branch Library. "The funding was cut, period, and it was cut specifically for temporary staff. But we rely very heavily on temporary staff. And I don't know if this toothpaste can get put back in the tube or not."

EE, if you are reading this, hope you can convince the County to restore the funding, and I also hope the Library system will quit relying on temporary workers.
