There are some recent news articles quoting a press release from Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility claiming that a few unions "representing 10,000 EPA employees" have sent a letter to Congress expressing concern about the closing of libraries. I thought readers of the list might be interested since it is one of the few instances of patrons banding together to make a statement about federal libraries. Also, some of the articles refer to interesting ROI figures. The articles can be found in Google news by searching for "Scientists Protest Library Closures."
