Your a Wise Man ! you know what they say " Ignorance is Bli$$ " glad to see I'm not the only one who utilizes my property taxes rather than just pay them and Complain ! if more peoples did we would need to put extensions on Libraries construction jobs would be created and then more Librarians would be needed and a good chance KIDS COULD GET SMARTER AS WELL through reading and using the COMPUTERS THERE FOR FREE ! zero ISP FEE's it's a win win for the Consumer !
Yeah Joe- know what you mean. I'm still an ole library junky from way back- I'm 48. Some of my earliest memories and what motivated me to be a life long reader- was my Dad going for "his" books (he was an avid reader) and he'd turn me loose and let me go stroll the "kids" section- I'd get airplane books, astronaut books, astronomy, Hardy Boy's - all kinds of cool stuff. After I gathered up an armful of books- I'd head back and find Dad in the mystery section- tug on his sleeve- and we'd check out and head home. I also used to buy TONS of books at the bi-annual library used book sale (paid like 25 cents each)- the funds go to the "friends of the library" and help to buy newer books. So- I'm totally in with supporting the library- one of those "government" functions that really "works" and has a great return on investment. DVD's are just icing on the cake.
