Your local public library is likely tied, inextricably, to your local economy. Most public libraries in the United States are paid for by some combination of sales and property tax. As spending halts, so does financial support for the library. We’re already seeing sweeping cuts to local administrations, laying off or furloughing hundreds of workers, library workers along with them. This isn’t false hype or hysteria. It’s happening. It will get worse.
I love libraries. It’s a love that began when I was in preschool and continues to this day. My love of listening to and reading stories dates back to my early childhood in suburban Chicago.
Libraries are radical places. If someone, say a politician, were to propose that society invest its money in creating organizations where people could access information in books, the internet, newspapers, they would be met with questioning looks. Or a place where people can go to meet together or work independently.
