Sharing the Many Joys of Libraries

August 20, 1995

With today's threats and actual closings of public libraries, what a pleasure to read "Well-Versed in the Pleasures of a Neighborhood Library," Michelle Williams' reminiscences in general and the news in particular that a new library is opening in Venice (Aug. 6). There's still hope for today's youth, our neglected senior citizens and anyone in between.

I can still recall my mother taking me to our neighborhood public library for the first time. It began my love affair with the library and its quiet, academic atmosphere that has continued throughout my life.

It is my earnest hope that politics won't be the death knell of our Southland's libraries, just as television has gradually done over the years, else what future will our future generations have?
