NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The William F. Laman Library has announced that it will be cutting eleven positions in addition to operating hours, programs, and the national traveling exhibits.
Mary Furlough, interim director, said that the library realizes that the changes, due to budget cuts, will affect the community, but the library is working hard to minimize any negative impacts.
Though some programs will be cut, Furlough confirmed that core services; public computers; free WIFI, downloadable books, movies, and music; passport acceptance services; notaries; and the Homebound Delivery Service will still be available to the public.
Furlough added that some of the cuts stem from going over budget with construction and renovation at the Argenta Branch.
