Library Board Finance Committee to Discuss FY2018 Library Budget October 7, 2016, 10 a.m. at Fairfax Library
Antonio Olivo has written an article about Fairfax County Public Library. It appeared in the print edition of the Washington Post newspaper yesterday. Included is this quote from the new library director:
Though Hudson did not rule out program cuts in the future, she said she intends to be strategic about where they are made.
“I prefer as much as possible to try and spread out budgetary cuts so we’re having impact but it’s not so painful for any one particular group,” Hudson said. “Every budget dollar that we have goes toward some value for someone.”
The Finance Committee of the Library Board will meet October 7 at 10 a.m. at the Fairfax Library to discuss the FY2018 library budget. We should get an idea at that time of what cuts the new library director and the Department of Management and Budget have in mind. The meeting is open to the public, but there will be no public comments allowed.
