Delivery reading program cut from library

Email

A free Kitchigami Regional Library service that delivers books to seniors and the home-bound is soon to disappear.

 Kitchigami Regional Director Marian Ridge said the decision to eliminate the program was based on data that suggested not enough people were using the service to justify the cost of running it. Ridge said that until Kitchigami began scaling back the program in 2011, it cost between $20,000 and $30,000 annually, or “well over” $1,000 per participant.
