Removal of Ine two mill limit on library budgets would be a vole for bcller library service and quality, says George Dew, chief librarian at Ihe Lelhbridge Public Library. Horst Schmid, minister of cul- ture, youth and recreation, said in an interview from Edmon- ton that he personally favors el- imination of the current limit on library spending.

The current budget of the Lethbridge Public Library is 1.94 mills, said Mr. Dew. With salary increases effective Jan. 1, 1973, it could be "very close" lo the two mill limit. The lolal local library budget is S227.GSO, which is more lhan two mills, but with income from sources such as government [ranis and revenue from boot oans, the budget is just below ho limit.
