If Only Money Would Grow On Trees
Quincy's beautiful library needs some money to grow on this tree to make up for a 10% budget loss this year to be followed by a proposed 9% budget reduction for next year. Hours have already been reduced and many people may lose their jobs unless changes are made to the budget.
I just don't understand why libraries get cut in tough times when more people make use of it for not just a good read but for internet access, entertainment, work, job search, research and special programming.
