Thank you, Ryan! What a wonderful tribute to the joy of going into a public library (“On the books,” June 7). And you know what? Four-hundred, seventy-five members of the Morro Bay Friends of the Library agree with you! These fine folks actually do pay a little bit every year to support our public library in Morro Bay, which is a free service after all.
But Friends of the Library know it takes extra support to keep the doors open and keep the materials circulating, especially in light of disappearing state funds for libraries.
I appreciate you reminding people, in print and on the Internet, how valuable this institution is to our social fabric.
