Laramie, WY – Officials at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne say budget cuts have forced the base to close its library.
Colonel Mike Morgan says the base lost more than $800,000 in service programs as part of military-wide budget revisions. Morgan says the library closure represents almost half of the directed cuts.
He says that if the base didn't close the library, it would have had to cut other programs.
The budget cuts will also affect custodial services, recycling contract services, sports and fitness programs, chapel musician services and cable TV services.
