April 27, Mail Tribune:

Recently I’ve spent many hours at Jackson County libraries registering voters for an American Association of University Women / League of Women Voters joint project. I’ve seen a wide variety of people using our libraries in different ways.

Tots attend story time, learning language, listening skills and social skills that prepare them for school. Students of a wide range of ages come to do research. Avid readers come in search of the latest fiction and nonfiction. Job-seekers, business people and organizations access resources and use public meeting rooms. Our libraries are bustling centers of our communities that provide what people need at every age and stage of life.

Vote yes on 15-122 to improve library access and keep our libraries open permanently with stable funding. — Gayle Clason, Medford
