Library Advocates Deliver Signatures to Nutter

Supporters of the Wadsworth Library in Cedarbrook -- one of the 11 libraries slated for closure under Mayor Nutter's budget cuts -- today delivered 1,750 signatures to Nutter, asking him to keep the branch open.

But while Nutter accepted the package outside his City Hall office, he made no such promise.

"We expect that the library will close," Nutter said, promising that there would still be "some level of library type services" in the neighborhood.

Ouida Davis, 33, who led the group that delivered the signatures, said she was frustrated.

"I don't think anything has changed," said Davis, whose 12-year-old son uses the Wadsworth branch, located at Wadsworth and Michener avenues. "I think everything is all political."
