March 14th, Mail Tribune:

While I was sunning on a bench outside Talent’s library, a cheerful young woman, preceded by a gaggle of excited preschool children, stopped to chat with me. She let the kids work off their high energy on the library’s playground slide for a few minutes before taking them in to choose a new bag of books.

She told me she does child care, and every week she rotates out the prior week’s children’s books for a new batch to read to them. Of all the excellent reasons to maintain our city libraries, I can’t think of a better one than this. Can you? — Gail Beason, Talent
