"The Privatization Beast" at Kern County Public Libraries

Administration at Kern County Public Libraries in California have been in talks with Library Systems & Services LLC to take over running their libraries. Part of the company's proposed plan is to reduce employee costs by eliminating the union, reducing contributions to pension plans, and relying on volunteer workers for some of the tasks currently completed by library staff.

Yesterday at Beale Memorial Library, one of the library system's locations, a reading was held of "The Privatization Beast", a story about a beast who eats libraries.
