California State Librarian Susan Hildreth spoke to a Sunday night group of about 40 at Pacific Grove Public Library on 1/27/08. Hildreth mentioned options that are open to libraries with large budget cuts including looking for money through tax measures, contracting out services to the county, another city, or a private company. The talk was informative and stimulated lots of discussion about the quality and quantity of library services the citizens of Pacific Grove can expect with a 50% budget cut.
