  • Additional Comments (130)
    • The most educated cities use the library
    • It is a pillar of the community
    • More comfortable seating (many)
    • Books
      • While I access almost all of my books and reading materials exclusively online to my ipad, I think it’s of great importance for my children to have access to books. This is particularly important now that the bookstores have all but disappeared. … I think a library takes on even greater importance now as a key community asset.
  • Against SC decision (45)
    • Without expert assistance close the doors (10)
    • Used to put books on hold through the county system
