There is a very interesting article on the NGS website about the closing of the genealogy collection of the Oregon State Library in Salem, Oregon: http://upfront.ngsgenealogy.org/2014/08/reference-room-closing-oregon-state.html
Be sure to check out both of the links in the article. They are returning all the books donated by the Willamette Valley Genealogical Society and are not going to let them meet at the library one day a month. The society is small and does not have the budget to rent their own library.
After reading this article I see a parallel to our collection at the Spokane Public Library and they had many more visits than we get in a month, so I am very glad we have a great relationship with our local library.
Any local genealogical societies are free to copy this article for their own newsletter.
