"Less than a month after city administrators in Colton, California, abruptly shuttered both public libraries as part of an effort to close a $5-million budget gap, Colton Public Library is back in business. The December 1 reopening of the main library came just two weeks after some 100 area residents, including library board President Pete Carrasco, voiced their displeasure to the City Council about the sudden November 12 closure of the libraries and the dismissal of all 17 library staff members. The city's only branch reopened December 3" - American Libraries
