Mayor Nutter said yesterday that five of the 11 library branches once scheduled to close permanently on Thursday are instead on track to be taken over by private foundations, wealthy individuals, companies, and community development corporations.
It was not immediately clear which branches have sponsors and the mayor did not identify the benefactors.
Speaking of unnamed benefactors: In this photo angry librarians -- do I repeat myself? -- and library-community organizers express dismay at the rumors that city libraries are soon (January 20) to be subsumed by Haliburton-Cheney, Inner City Division.
