They did discuss the materials budget which I think was around $500,000, but $200,000 of it was the for LAW Library in Clermont. I never understood in this day of the internet why a attorneys needed to be subsidized by having their own library - especially when the moved it so far from the Courts in Tavares.

Very valid points, you make there. Indeed, we need to balance the budget and avoid increasing taxes but I'm not sure why we should get rid of a library instead of cutting library expenses across the board. Maybe we need to stop buying new materials for a while... there are tons of materials already at our disposal in the existing libraries that I'm sure never get checked out. What exactly is the budget for new materials, does anyone know?
