The memo written by Chuck Huckleberry outlining all of the branch and programming cuts can be found on the PCPL website at library.pima.gov.
There is also a petition on moveon.org titled Don't let the Legislature slash finding for libraries! Signatures (according to the creator) will be delivered to the AZ House, AZ Senate and to Gov. Brewer.
Also read Chuck Huckleberry's memo on the Pima Co. Public Library site. Several branches would close and programs such as homework help, computer classes, and job help would end. This would have a ripple effect affecting even non-library users as these services help prepare people with skill needed to be able to join today's workforce and in supporting our already strapped schools by supporting our communities kids. This is a knee-jerk bill with no consideration for the negative impact on our communities, businesses, and schools due to the cuts that will have to be made.
