The death of the Michigan State Library

Only recently I completed several posts about the various state archives including the Michigan State Archives. Little did I know at the time that the Michigan State Library was doomed. In addition, the Michigan State Archives is being moved from the Department of History, Arts and Libraries, (which is being abolished) to the Department of Natural Resources. The resources of the State Library, including documents and rare books are to be stored or given to some other institution. All this is being accomplished by an Executive Order, No. 2009-36 of Jennifer M. Granholm, the Governor of Michigan. Thanks for the heads up to Leland and Patty Meitzler.

  1. Are those people in Michigan crazy? Have they completely lost their minds? What are they thinking? And why aren't the citizens of the state -- especially the genealogically and historically minded ones -- not in open rebellion?

    What is wrong with that governor?
