The article reports on the request by San Francisco Public Library chief librarian Luis Herrera for the city's Board of Supervisors to transfer $4 million budgeted for library operations into the branch library improvement program for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2006. Marcian Schneider, the library' chief of communications and adult services, claimed that the funds will be used for the capital program because prospective contractors are asking for more money than originally anticipated.
