At the Library Board meeting Wednesday, March 11, 2015, Library Board Chair Charles Fegan said that the cut to the library budget is 8%. He stated that this is a very big cut and will make it very difficult for the library to continue to provide services to the community.
Jennifer McCullough, President of the Fairfax County Public Library Employees Association presented a statement regarding the cuts of 27 to 28 part time circulation aide positions. She stated that the FCPLEA Board urged the Library Board to press the Board of Supervisors to restore the library budget, retain the vacant circulation aide positions and allow them to be filled.
She also stated that the cut was too much and does not match supervisor priorities for a vibrant economy with a quality education system and recreational and cultural opportunities.
