Dear Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Los Angeles City Council Members,

We oppose your plan to impose massive cuts to the Los Angeles Public Library. We affirm that the library is an integral part of our community and know that your intended cuts would destroy the library as we know it.

This means reduced hours, reduced services, branch closures, drastically limited Internet access, and fewer books, DVDs and programs for our community. Your plan proposes at least an 11\% cut of our staffthe highest percentage of any affected city department.

Your 5-year fiscal plan renders LAPL inoperable. Imposing additional library staff cuts by the hundreds will cause even more drastic changes.

A world-class city demands a world-class library. We citizens and voters of Los Angeles urge you to leave our world-class library alone.
