Following is a clarification on budget information from the Feb.14 story on Crosslake and Pequot Lakes libraries losing $20,000 in funding.
This year the Kitchigami Regional Library System (KRLS) received $20,000 less than it requested from the Crow Wing County Board. KRLS requested a 2013 budget of $549,002, but received from the board $529,002.
In 2012, KRLS’ budget was $537,412. That means KRLS’ 2013 budget is $8,410 less than 2012.
