The Reiche branch of the Portland Public Library is slated for closure as part of operational and staff cuts related to the city's 2009 budget. Steve Podgajny, library executive director, warned three weeks ago that staff cuts and reduced hours were likely despite increased library use. The Reiche decision was based on several factors, including its proximity to the main library and low lending rates. At-Large City Councilor John Anton encouraged the public to lobby library trustees about the proposed closure. West End residents asked the city council to find a way to spare the branch.
