Library cuts put off until July

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS —

The potential closures come at a time when the library system is seeing record patronage. Last year IMCPL had almost 6 million visitors, more than 17 million items checked out, and 1.2 million session hours of free computer usage. Only about 4 percent of the library’s budget comes from fines and fees. State statute requires most library services be offered free to residents.

The decisions will be made at the library board’s next meeting at 6:30 p.m. July 15 in the Riley Meeting Room at Central Library, 40 E. St. Claire St., Indianapolis.
