This Halloween, the question book lovers plan to pose to Mayor Rahm Emanuel: Will it be trick or treat for Chicago’s public libraries?
Members of AFSCME Council 31 (the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees) are organizing a march on City Hall, Monday, Oct. 31, at 10:30 a.m., to urge the mayor to roll back proposed cuts in library funding. As the mayor’s budget currently stands, the Chicago Public Library system would lose $10 million in funding, with hours reduced at all 75 branches and hundreds of positions eliminated, including more than 60 librarians.
Join the read-in at 121 N. LasSalle, 5th floor. Bring your friends, family, children…and your library books.
