The new City of Manitowoc budget calls for $250,000 in cuts, nearly $100,000 more than the 10% reduction proposed by Mayor Nickels. Library management has been working on ways to make the initial $166,553 reduction while maintaining service. The additional cuts make that impossible. 
These cuts could mean a reduction in teen library services which means plans for a new teen space could end, and negative effects of summer reading program, teen programs, teen book collection, and battle of the books. If you wish to help, please attend the meeting TOMORROW - Thursday, December 8, at 5 p.m. in the City Council Chambers to show your support for the teen services provided by Manitowoc Public Library.
Directions -- City Hall - (by the river) When you enter City Hall from main entrance, take a right to get to the Council Chambers.
Please come to show your support and pass along the word!
