BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The Livingston Parish Library is urging parish residents to attend its board meeting Tuesday to show support for the library while it faces a potential funding cut that could significantly alter library services and operations.
The meeting will be at 5 p.m. at its Denham Springs-Walker Branch location at 8101 U.S. Hwy 190 in Denham Springs.
According to a social media post from the library, District 9 Councilman Shane Mack favors cutting the library’s funding by 50% to allocate more funds to the Gravity Drainage District 8.
“Losing 50% of the funding will result in multiple branch closures, elimination of most of the library’s programs and services, and stopping of all building maintenance,” the post reads.
The post calls on residents to attend the meeting to show their support of the library.
