INDICATORS: LIBRARIES FUNDING IS CUT

American Library Assn - A survey finds that half of states have reduced funding to public libraries and to state library agencies, and close to one-quarter of urban libraries have reduced open hours.

More than three-quarters of all public libraries reported increased use of their public Internet computers over the past year, and 71 percent reported increased wireless use.

Two-thirds of all libraries reported that staff members help patrons complete online job applications and offer software or other resources to help patrons create resumes and other employment materials. The vast majority of libraries surveyed provide access to job databases and other online resources and civil service exam materials.
