Article Details Largest Library Closures in the U.S.

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on March 5, 2007

SFGate.com reports that on April 7, Jackson County Oregon will closed “its entire public library system…as the 15 libraries serving this rural forest community lost $7 million in federal funding this year — nearly 80 percent of the system’s budget.”

  • See the Jackson County Library Information blog for postings, inclusive of this information: “The final day to check out library materials will be Thursday, April 5th. Libraries will be open on April 6th for in-library use, and to receive returned materials. All books and other items will be due back on April 6, 2007. No library services will be available to the public after April 6, 2007. This includes access to library collections; use of meeting rooms; access to computers; computer instruction; adult, teen and children’s programs; reference services; book delivery to the homebound and to retirement homes and daycare centers; remote computer access to electronic databases and downloadable audiobooks; wireless access; and all other library services.”
