I'm interested in how many library systems are facing more cuts for the next fiscal year. If so, is your library introducing automated check out as a result?

I don't know about that but the last I did hear was an 18% slash to the budget.

We installed two self-check machines this year. They were purchased through a technology grant. We cannot get grants to pay for people, so we have to use technology to try and maintain service.

This year we have $4,000 total to buy books and newspapers. That won't even pay for the newspaper subscriptions.

We are coming up on budget season again. Libraries are bracing for another cut for the 3rd year in a row. It's crazy - the libraries are even busier!!!
