Luc Bauwens: What is the impact of the economic crisis on libraries?

Luc Bauwens

Almost everywhere (local) authorities have to economize as a result of the crisis. What impact does this have on the libraries ?  Are they spared because their government considers them a basic need? Or do they head the list of low priorities ? And if libraries have to scrimp, how do they go about it ? What services bear the brunt ? Are there cuts in the collections or operations, the opening hours, the number of staff ? What does this mean for the users ? Are they expected to pay higher fees, for membership for instance or for some services?
