Boston Public Library: High Budget, Low Circ

teaperson writes "The Boston Globe reported on its front page Saturday that the Boston Public Library is one of the best-funded in the nation, but ranks 59th out of 77 large libraries in circulation. The finding was from a study commissioned by the Mayor and library board, who are apparently waking up to the fact that nearly a third of residents surveyed would never even use the library.

This should make good fodder for next week's PLA conference - in Boston."
