The Library is fading away
Due to state budget cuts the Library buys less books, hires no new staff, is cutting back on services and hours, and even on routine maintenance.
The Library is in the process of shrinking and soon can not be utilized for serious research anymore.

"The cost of housing state prison inmates has grown so much in the past decade that California now spends more incarcerating 167,000 adults than it does to educate 226,000 students in its 10-campus University of California system."

California spends more on Prisons than on Education! : Click here
