State budget cuts force libraries to close earlier

State budget cuts have forced some Jackson-Hinds Libraries to reduce branch hours. The Mississippi Library Commission's funding was cut by $1.1 million dollars.

The City of Jackson increased the Library System's budget by $50,000 to make up for the shortage.

The Hinds County Board of Supervisors provided $10,000 to reduce the impact of the shortfall.
