Save Our Small Public Libraries

I have set-up a new blog at: that deals with possible consolidation issues of public libraries in Indiana. This is a personal blog and has no official link with the Public Library's blog.

Public Library Consolidation

Very soon our local library may well be swallowed and consolidated into a larger system. I appreciate the economic factors that are driving this, but when will people understand that the human factor also needs to be considered.

Many at the legislative level need to be made aware of the costs that will be involved in consolidating public libraries. All the legislators have heard so far is the unproven end result of saving money, whereas this may be far from the truth.

More later.
