My favorite trip as a young child was going to the library. There were always new books to look at, read and discuss. In every community I have ever lived in – and there have been quite a few – I have ALWAYS gone to the local library to get a library card, and enjoy free access to a huge variety of information. This is absolutely essential in a free society! Put this to a general population vote, and I would be willing to bet no one would allow the closing of any local libraries.
