I must speak up for the libraries. It is scary that public libraries are being closed. In a democracy, free speech, public education, voting rights and freedom of religion are very important. Libraries contain information for the public.
The libraries that are to be closed are in lower income neighborhoods that need them the most. I have friends who travel and use the computers; others who use the fax machines and my elderly neighbors read books from the library. We are a community of immigrants, who at one time or another appreciated all the opportunities America offered. I guess it’s been a while since our public officials needed to use the public library or public transportation.
