Please join the Friends of the Seattle Public Library tonight at 5:30 p.m. at the Seattle City Council budget hearing, we really need a critical mass to show the Council how detrimental their proposed budget cuts will be for Seattle residents — the current proposed budget will be 3-5 times greater than the 2010 budget cuts already in effect. I attended the last hearing and saw that the library supporters were scant compared to other advocacy groups who spoke. If you are able to make it, look for the Friends of SPL group, some of whom will be wearing shirts that say “Friends Don’t Let Friends Lose Libraries” and signs with the images above and below. If you’re unable to make it tonight, please check out the “What You Can Do” page on the Friends of SPL site and the Fall 2010 Advocacy Fact Sheet, and share this info with fellow Seattle residents who are library supporters!
