About 20 protestors wanted their voices heard loud and clear in the typically quiet halls of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County Tuesday morning. Upset over board of trustees' decision to shutter the library's north building, which primarily serves youth, members of Democratic Socialists for America started the protest outside then quickly confronted the board at their meeting. Protestors flooded the public comment segment with plea after plea for members to reconsider consolidating all library services in the south building. The board responded that no jobs or services were being removed.
