EPA halts library closures – 1st Amendment Center

Courtney Holliday from the First Amendment Center reports that the Environmental Protection Agency is halting its library closures plan “in response to heavy criticism from lawmakers and advocacy groups”:

“Under pressure from members of Congress and groups such as the ALA, the EPA announced in January that it would not close additional libraries until more public outreach was done, according to the Library Journal.”

So it’s not over yet, per se.
