If they'd stick to quality books, instead of providing computer entertainment, and lending audio CDs, DVDs, pictures, trash fiction, etc., they'd have plenty of money. Honestly, in these days where used books, CDs and DVDs are hyper-inexpensive and available nearly everywhere, there's absolutely no need for government libraries. Myself, I love books and music, and would like very much to buy more, but cannot because through the years I've "given" thousands of dollars of property tax to a pathetic library that has little or nothing of interest to me.Tom Hurst –Sep 5, 2012 14:10:25 PM
