A sad day for libraries

All fifteen of Jackson County Library branches are closed as of Saturday, April 7, 2007, due to a lack of funding.

Although it is no longer active, Gary Paulson wrote a wonderful letter on the Jackson County Library blog about the impact of libraries on his life. His open letter can be found here.

I feel for all the library staff members who lost jobs they loved dearly. I feel even more for those communities who lost such an invaluable resource.
