Everyone: Johnson City Public Library is facing drastic cuts in funding this fiscal go-round. The library has been stagnate in funding for the past 3 or 4 years, so these cuts would have a profound negative impact on library services. Due to a state law called "maintenance of effort," the library would lose access to its online regional catalog system in the event of the cut. It seems the current mayor of Johnson City really has it out for the library. The Johnson City Press is conducting a poll right now about whether the library should sustain deep cuts: the more No votes that it gets the better, so please vote No if you get a chance.
