Petition to save East Cobb library

Source: WGCL

Cobb County budget issues have a local library at risk of closing.

An online petition with more than 1,000 signatures is circulating after Commissioner JoAnn Birrell suggested closing the library to help close a $21 million budget deficit.

In 2011 during a budget deficit Cobb County reduced library hours to save money. Once again the county is struggling financially after voting to not raise the millage rate.
