- Football Yes, Libraries No, by the San Diego Weekly
- New library plan would close 5 city branches, by the Rhode Island News
- Philly trying to preserve jobs while making cuts, by the Houston Chronicle — Philadelphia closed 11 libraries as part of additional cuts.
And yes, all this despite the fact that libraries are picking up business in this bad economy (according to MSNBC and others).
