I posted on my Facebook account about how your local libraries are essential to the community, but I don’t have too many friends on there, so I wanted to make my opinion known for those of you who don’t know me personally.
I must remind you because it is of the utmost importance, if you don’t go to the library you will lose it. If you want to keep your kids, guests, or friends entertained for a few hours:
TAKE THEM TO THE LIBRARY.
If someone you know doesn’t like to read, they have computers to play games and comic books. They have free audio books. They have free classes on how to get a job and learning to use the computer. It’s not just for the poor, families, or the elderly. EVERYONE NEEDS TO GO TO THE LIBRARY. People complain about being broke and hating their job, but won’t take advantage of free resources, then complain when they are gone. They closed down 400 voting centers in Texas. Don’t let them close down the libraries. We have 1.4 million people in this city.
DO YOU REALLY WANT THERE TO BE FEWER PLACES TO VOTE?
Sorry, for all the screaming caps, but I will keep screaming until people start to appreciate the library and all the good it does for the community. I’m going to school for this. If we let Amazon take over the libraries, you will have crushed not only my spirit but millions of others who love the library.
So I don’t care if you think you don’t have time to go to the library. MAKE TIME. A library card is free. Even if you owe money on your card or your card is expired, you can still attend events and use the computer.
Amazon pay $0 in taxes, so you will still have to pay the same amount in taxes and no library.
Please take this time to find out where your local library is and get a free library card as soon as possible. If you live in the San Antonio area, feel free to check out the Ruth Mini Mobile Library or the San Antonio Public Library
