Southeast Steuben Co. Library Making Cuts

     CORNING (WENY) --  A failed 2013 funding referendum is forcing the Southeast Steuben County Library to make major cuts, starting this weekend.

     As of March 2, the library will no longer be open on Sundays but will open an hour earlier during the week to make up for the loss.  The library is also cutting two full time staff positions, 25 percent of its programming and the budget for new books and technology upgrades

     Library leaders changed the 2014 budget to absorb $100,000 worth of necessary cuts.
