EPA libraries reopening
From the Federal Register: "The EPA is enhancing access to library services for the public and Agency staff. EPA will open previously closed libraries in its National Library Network, with walk-in access for the public and EPA staff." The libraries are reopening in Chicago, Kansas City, Dallas, and Washington D.C. According to PEER - Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility - the union representing federal workers in the libraries had to work hard to get the EPA to agree to provide adequate space, trained librarians and equipment to handle staff requirements and to accommodate usage by the general public.
