An article on the Portland Public Library's proposed closure of the Reiche branc
An article on the Portland Public Library's proposed closure of the Reiche branch, which was stayed for a year by the city council's restoration of $30,000 to the library's budget, bringing it equal to 2008 funding. Several councilors at a meeting on May 19 said the library needs to engage the public during the next year as it plans for the future of its branches. The library receives 80 percent of its funding from the city, but is a nonprofit and is run by a board of trustees. Monthly board meetings are not required to be open to the public. The public was allowed to attend a trustees' meeting May 14, but the agenda was changed from discussing the budget to an open forum. Trustees are set to vote on the budget in June.
