Orient Heights Branch gets a lease on life

Statement of BPL President Amy Ryan

Thanks to the support of the legislature and the Governor and the leadership of Mayor Menino, supplemental funding from the state will allow the Boston Public Library to continue to keep all branches open for the remainder of the fiscal year. This means that the four branches scheduled to close at the end of March -- Faneuil, Lower Mills, Orient Heights, and Washington Village -- are now fully funded through June 2011. Boston Public Library Trustees will formally take action on the supplemental funding at their next regular meeting, which is scheduled for January 18 at the recently reopened Brighton Branch library.

Work continues on the development of a sustainable budget for the coming fiscal year. We acknowledge that our FY12 budget remains uncertain, but we are grateful for the ongoing partnership of our many users, friends, community members, and elected leaders.  |  |
