California: Library Union Illustrates Their Opposition to Privatization
UPDATE May 18: Impartial Survey First Step to Saving Libraries, Group Tells Advocates (via The Bakersfield Californian)
Union members joined in the fight against the possibility of privatizing local libraries with the help of a book.
“The Privatization Beast” is a story of a community coming together to support public services.
The beast made an appearance Saturday at the Beale Memorial Library.
People who frequently use our libraries are opposed outsourcing libraries to a private company.
That’s an option as county supervisors look for ways to trim the budget.
