Grime Worried About Library Funding Removed From House Budget

House Budget Chairman Cody Smith removed all 4.5 million dollars in state funding for libraries, after the Missouri Library Association was part of a lawsuit over last year’s state law that has led to hundreds of books being removed from library shelves statewide. Little Dixie Regional Library Director Rachel Grime said losing that kind of money would make a big impact if approved…..

Grime said it would be even rougher on rural individual libraries….

The budget is now being considered in the Missouri Senate.
