Urban Librarians Unite supports the decision to sell limited library properties to address the Capital Budget shortfall. We see this as a difficult decision and a last ditch remedy to a problem that has been decades in the making. This problem has gotten so bad that real solutions must be found. While there is still much discussion to be had about the particulars of each location these plans ultimately offer an immediate practical solution which will afford the best result for the most library users.

While we wish that this was not happening we see it as a painful but necessary choice.
