LA city ballot measure locks in money for libraries

On March 8, Los Angeles city voters will decide whether to set aside more money for public libraries in the city’s charter. Last year, the mayor and City Council slashed spending on the library system to address a big budget deficit. That forced all 76 locations to close two days a week for the first time. The measure would reverse that, but may require deeper cuts elsewhere in the city.
