Moose Jaw Times-Herald: A “desperate” budget for Palliser Regional Library
By Lisa Goudy
The Palliser Regional Library is in dire need of money.
“Our budget is pretty desperate," said Jan Smith, director of the Palliser Regional Library. "We’ve had to cut out $44,000. We’ve lost 37 staff hours at headquarters. We’ve lost one full position and we’ve lost one day courier.
“Our salaries are going up, power’s going up, heat’s going up – everything’s going up. We’re cut to the bone and this year we’re bleeding.”
