For 50 years, the Kanawha County School board has more than $2 million to the county library system – until now. Earlier this month, they said they would stop giving money to the library. They say they can’t spare it, and a recent court decision allows them to keep it. Library officials disagree. They say a new state law is on their side. And, they say they were blindsided by the cuts. They could lose one-third of their budget overnight. And they worry Kanawha County is just the first.
