LAWTON,Okla_Lawton's City Council also heard from supporters of the Lawton Public Library, who were upset over a cut in funding during the budget debate.
Many brought books to the council chambers, and wore 'Library Lover' stickers. This was part of a silent protest, while a spokesperson, Patty Neuwirth, pleaded to the council for a change of heart.
The city's decision also led a loss of matching funds from the state, so there's not enough money to buy new books this year.
Kay Foster, a library supporter, spoke about the importance of funding for the library.
