Washington State Library’s Existence Threatened

This is one of the most nutso things I’ve heard for awhile. New Breed Librarian reports:

"Washington State Library is fighting for its existence. If shut down, Washington will lose a unique repository serving historians, public officials, genealogists, and others. Further, WA would be the only state without a state library."

While I understand that budget cuts can mean some tough decisions, this kind of potential cut is absolutely ludicrous. Let’s hope the publicity stops this one in its tracks before it gets even close to passing.
