Although disappointing, I’m not surprised, especially given the fact that most state agencies/programs were told to submit budgets with a 15%. Also, people can get information from so many sources now. Still, I know loyal listeners will miss the service.

> Hi, PAC - most people have been informed about ERRS and I just sent a message to our listserv.  At this point, you are welcome to share this information - the message is below.  As I mentioned before, this decision was not in the works at our last PAC meeting.  Thank you, Danielle
> As some of you may know, the Evergreen Radio Reading Service (ERRS) lost its funding at the end of 2011, and has since been operating in a severely diminished capacity.  The closure of ERRS is a great loss to the community and Washington Talking Book & Braille Library (WTBBL) patrons, however it has become extremely difficult to keep the station operating without funding and staffing.
