Liberty Ranch High School students have waited for two years to see their media center shelves stocked with books. Now that they’re finally there, they can’t check them out due to a lack of security measures.

The Galt Joint Union High School District is in the process of hiring a part-time library clerk to oversee the process, but has directed current funding be used to bring back teachers first, according to Superintendent Daisy Lee.

    In fact, budget cuts were not to blame. It was someone in the administration. I was on the Bond Oversight Committee at the time, and we received budgets on a regular basis. In the last budget, there was a line item in the budget for for furnishing the school. Underneath was a sub line item of about $110,000 for outfitting the library with books, etc. Since that money did not come from the bond sale, we had no authority over it in our reports, but the money was allocated. I have no idea where it went, but looking at the furnishings in the school, my guess is that it was spent on furniture that was much nicer than it needed to be. The furniture is top of the line and had it been stepped down a little, I feel certain that the library would have been outfitted properly by the time the school opened.
