I agree I went to the library with my kids today and there was a women in front handing out fliers about a tax initiative to raise taxes to go to libraries. She said that if it doesn't go through that they will have to close 2 libraries. That would be a shame! Gwen Dennett com 101 sec 4522

Even if you're well-educated, there's still a good chance that you've been laid off due to the recession. I guess the most we can do is make ourselves stand above the rest of our degree-bound peers to not only get the degree, but know the subject beyond the required reading. Too bad our libraries aren't the best in Las Vegas.

Cutting educational opportunities for people in the long run may cause a damn plague. Hygiene, doctors etc...

I've noticed at the library I go to the hours have been cut and I think it's sad that they are doing away with some of them because they are a great source of information and good for the community.

This two statements are very linked for me. Both of them are always being under looked and never really appraiated. When Recession comes people blame libraries saying thats it h=just takes up money n space not knowing that its a key part to solving the problem. Same is true with hospitals. When plague comes people blame the hospitals for not being able to cure them.

I feel that this statement is true and false because on one hand I like the library and used to assit in one while i was in middle school and high school, but on the other hand technology has clouded many people and these days it is more likely for someone to be reading on some kind of device, even in the library, rather than an actual book with actual pages.

I think before they just start cutting out things, they should take a look and see who is using them, and how often, and then make their decisions based on that.

I think that is not a fair comparison. There are other things you can use to get information and reading material, such as books/magazines you can buy at the store and the internet. As for hospitals, they are a necessity and can be the matter of life and death. This post was a bit dramatic if you ask me.

But is that information of the quality a librarian can help you find, or as tangible as a printed book. And most people still rely on libraries for Internet access, children's reading rooms and other services. Education and libraries are as important to our future as hospitals and health care.
