Next week Decatur Librarian Cecilia Barham, Decatur Youth Services Librarian Katie Morris and Newark Library Director Megan Suffling will attend Library Legislative Day to discuss proposed budget cuts with state legislators.
They will also give the legislators letters and notes written by patrons expressing the importance of the libraries in Wise County. If you would like to submit a note, visit your local library before the end of the day Monday and fill out a card with your name, address and what the library means to you.
The proposed cuts are severe, so if you appreciate your library, let your voice be heard. Read the Feb. 13 edition of the Messenger for more information about how these cuts will affect the libraries in Wise County.
You can also learn more about the issues on the Texas Library Association website.
