Despite multiple good faith attempts within the system to mitigate the damage of proposed Library cuts by numerous interested parties over the past few months, you implemented a policy of dumping large numbers of books behind building 202 without proper notice to employees or lower-level management and without adequate safeguards to protect this incredibly valuable asset for the Center, the Agency, and its employees. Many dumpsters filled with books have already been lost (see attached photo taken this Wednesday evening) and these books/journals were not all duplicates or available on line. Had the Union, the Chief Scientist, and other dedicated employees not intervened to halt this process, the plan was to eliminate most of the book collection.Libraries
