Library Lights On, Doors Open - For Now Earlier this week, Kevin Livingston had a story in The Recorder [via], about a measure pending in the California legislature (AB 2648) that would have removed state funds presently footing the bill for county law library facilities (including rent, utilities and furniture). Thanks to the protests of law librarians, lawyers and judges from around the state, the bill has been amended to keep the funding in place, with a proviso that counties may review facilities expenses to ensure they are "necessary." Woe to the hapless public servant who fails to look before s/he bean-counts, however. As Michael Moore's publisher can attest, you simply do not mess with the librarians; you fall to your knees as rapidly as possible and worship them [via Jenny]!
