The DC Public Library received an 11% budget cut for the year starting October 1, 2009. Chief Librarian Ginnie Cooper
expects that volunteers will make a huge difference, "we have a growing
number of volunteers who do wonderful work at the Library and we always
need and welcome more," said Cooper. "Volunteers can help augment the
work of staff by helping to do things like shelve books, teach computer
classes, or conduct workshops."
