Library cuts to be discussed in August

ANDERSON — Budget cuts that could include closing the Lapel Branch will be discussed next month at a special meeting of the Anderson Public Library Board.

The board met Wednesday but took no action on cuts. Executive Director Sarah Later said the recent special session of the Indiana General Assembly resulted in a budget calendar that gives the library a one-month extension, until October, to pass a budget.

The board’s special meeting will be Aug. 12 at 4:15 p.m. at the Anderson library.
