Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, defending proposed budget cuts in a series of town meetings, has come face to face with city residents critical of plans to close 11 of 54 branches of the Free Library of Philadelphia. At a meeting recently, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Nutter seemed unswayed by chants of “Let us read” and “Save Engine 6.”
