Balls & Strikes

Vancouver Public Library workers are striking. Strike blog here.

After considerable pressure by librarians, researchers and the public, Congress has ordered the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to restore its library network. In the fiscal year (FY) 2008 Interior Appropriations bill, the Senate Appropriations Committee orders EPA to
reopen the closed libraries. Last year, EPA closed its Headquarters Library in Washington, DC, to visitors and walk-in patrons. EPA also closed several regional libraries, the toxics and pesticides library and the Ft. Meade Environmental Science Center Library. The EPA is revising their library and website and asking for input. If interested go here. There is currently legislation aimed at weakening the TRI (Toxic Release Inventory) database.
