Last year, libraries got $1.1 million for supplies. This year, the system is looking at $440,000.
Sara Fountain, chair of DeKalb County Public Library's board of trustees, says the cut would be damaging.
"A lot of people who use the library don't have the financial resources to access certain materials," Fountain says. "And so it's a critical need for our community."
