The End of the Pennsylvania State Library As We Know It

Educational and cultural institutions are being hit hard by the economy. Saturday's Harrisburg Patriot News, my "hometown" newspaper, reports that Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell will be cutting 50 of the current 57 staff positions at the Pennsylvania State Library and the budget will be cut in half. A fight is expected.

Sad news.

Thanks for the nod. Please continue to make as much noise as you can about the impending death of the State Library.
