According to LAist, another library may bite the dust soon, thanks to state  budget cuts. This one is no local outpost of the LAPL, however, but UCLA's wonderful Arts Library, located on North Campus.  A tipster alerted writer Zach Behrens to both the planned closure and a petition drive that is being waged to keep the library open.

“UCLA Library Management,” the petition begins, “behind closed doors and without consultation with the UCLA community has decided to close its Arts Library, potentially as soon as January 2010.”
