Funding Issues Continue for Kanawha County Library
As the Kanawha County Library continues to look at its funding options, it was dealt another blow recently. A supreme court decision back in February released the school district from its obligation to provide funding to the library, although it can still offer fund voluntarily. Now the West Virginia Library Commission won't award more than $25,000 in grant funding to the library because the library's 2013 operating expenditures didn't meet standards. The Charleston Gazette reports that will result in a penalty, with grant funds reduced by $25,398.
