27 Librarian to be Cut in Federal Way Schools

Kimberly Rose wasn't expecting to hear 27 librarians might not be in Federal Way Public Schools next fall.
"That was a complete shock," Rose, the librarian at Star Lake Elementary School, said Tuesday night after superintendent Tom Murphy proposed cutting the number of librarians from 34 to seven next year to save $1.4 million and help stem a $4.2 million hole in the school district's budget...The teachers union vowed to fight the proposal, and the librarians have been persuasive lobbyists in past budget debates.
