Obstacles loom for library's relocation

"Gov. Jeb Bush and Secretary of State Glenda Hood have argued that giving away part of the State Library to Nova Southeastern University would make the books and other materials more accessible to more people in heavily populated South Florida."

"But now officials concede that, if the move is approved by state legislators, no one would have access to most of the books and records for a year or longer. And even then, only Broward County residents could go to the Nova library and check them out."

"If the state donates the $10 million collection to the university, many of the more than 600,000 books, videos and other items would first have to be renumbered and relabeled, which would keep them from the public for many months." (from Sun-Sentinel)
