Where do I get more information about the library budget cuts? All this news is nice, but there's no news about upcoming budget cuts. I keep putting books on hold, etc.,and the lists are so long. I want to help support the library.

The FY 2011 budget has not been released yet; the Library Board of Trustees has only submitted a proposed budget to the County Executive based on a potential 15% cut to the library. The County Executive, Tony Griffin, will present his advertised budget on Feb. 23, and the Board of Supervisors will vote on the final budget in April. For more information, visit http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/government/budget/. Thank you for your support, and we are sorry about the long wait list for books.
