BPL in Budget Crisis and The Film Tax Credit

The Boston Public Library has a $3.6 million budget shortfall, and administrators are considering closing some of the system's 26 neighborhood branches.  That has friends of the library system organizing to make the case for their favorite branch libraries to be kept open.  We'll take a look at some of the various branches and ask, which ones perhaps should close?

Also, we'll discuss the state's film tax credit, which some people argue is a give away to Hollywood film executives, and some is an important economic stimulus.  Do you care if movies and TV shows are shot in Massachusetts?  We'll talk with a current reality TV show star from Massachusetts.
