I spent a good part of my Monday at the West Pittston Library. It was the day the building, damaged in the September flood, reopened. It's not a huge building, but it has everything you need, and its very nice inside. The people in West Pittston are lucky, and I'm tickled to see the community supports the library.
Libraries have been having a rough time in recent years. Less and less money is coming from government. I can understand that. Taxes are already high. Government has to provide essential services. Knowledge is essential, but you also have to care for the very young, the very old and keep the streets safe.
If your community has a nice library, please take the time to appreciate it.
