Libraries hope for more under new department

Antigonish (CP) - The president of the Library Boards Association of Nova Scotia says a recent cabinet shuffle that saw the responsibility for libraries moved to a new department could be good news.

Mary MacLellan says moving libraries from the Department of Education to the newly created Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage could work out better in terms of both service and funding.

She says while libraries were under the Education Department, it was always a "major struggle" to try to get funding.

Additionally, she says that any time there were cuts in the department, libraries were naturally included.
