Texas Libraries Face Federal Funding Cuts


2. Category: Education

3. Level: State

4. This article concerns libraries statewide.

5. This article concerns libraries because they are having their funds are being cut which is threatening to close them down.

6. This issue is concerning to me because libraries are such an important part in every town, not only in libraries in our state but in the country. They serve as a source of history for us. Libraries also have other services aside from book rentals and funding for those can also be at risk to be closed down. The article mentioned the program To Read or Not to Read, which are ESL classes for Spanish speakers. These classes have helped parents learn english so they can communicate better, especially with schools. Programs like this are important to communities and if they are closed down a lot of people will be affected.
