Glenn “I went to the library — the books are free” Beck is wrong. According to Huffington Post, “Libraries and Librarians Are Endangered Species: What You Can Do to Help”
Someone told me that when economic times are tough there are two places you do not close — libraries and parks. People need to nurture their minds and their bodies. This is not the time to cut funds to these institutions so drastically that they can’t survive, let alone prosper. I am reaching for the Friends of the Library card that I got in the mail the other day. For $15 I can support my local library. That’s about the cost of one trade paperback book. Given the resources the library affords me, it’s quite a bargain.
For Austinites, here a link to the Austin Library’s website.
