The Mobile Public Library’s budget is up in the air.
The budget proposed by Mayor Sandy Stimpson wants to cut about $500,000, but the City Council Budget Task Force is recommending the funding not be cut.
"We do appreciate the finance task force, Councilman Richardson, Williams and Rich, them getting together and recognizing how important library services are to the community and how it's important to keep those services the same or even better,” said Amber Guy, a spokeswoman for the library.
Library officials told FOX10 News earlier this month, such a big cut would impact people who use libraries.
The Stimpson Administration said the city has been spending considerably more on libraries compared to peer cities, like Montgomery and Huntsville.
