Oak Lawn Library gets more LGBT stuff, but hours are in danger of being cut in half

Oak Lawn Branch Library volunteer and Stonewall Democrats board member Phyllis Guest reports that the library’s selection of gay titles on DVD has quadrupled in the last few months:

The OLL has long had a selection of LGBTA books, both fiction and
nonfiction, with a number of  new “Young Adult” novels coming in the
last year or so.

But the selection of movies and TV series on DVDs has been meager.

Then, between Thursday, April 1 (when I went on Grand Jury duty and
had to stop volunteering several days a week) and Thursday, May 27,
the DVD collection quadrupled.

Good news for the gayborhood, I think.

And now for the bad news: The Dallas Morning News reports today that the city may cut hours in half at neighborhood libraries next year, from 40 a week to 20 a week, due to the huge budget shortfall. Read more about that by going here.
