Layoffs Looming At Detroit Public Library

DETROIT (WWJ) – It could be the final chapter for 83 jobs at the Detroit Public Library.

Layoff notices could be sent out as early as today — and would take effect March 31st. The cuts would represent about 20 percent of staff.

Senior administrators are also taking a ten percent pay cut. It’d be the first layoffs for the library in a quarter-century.

Library officials call their current financial crisis “unprecedented.”
