Everyday I see more people in Northgate library

Tsukina Blessing told Council, “My son’s school can’t go on as many field trips this year because families are all feeling economic distress but they can go to the library and they can walk. My son’s afterschool day care program can’t afford to buy new materials for reading but they can go to the library and they can walk. Everyday I see more people in Northgate library using computers and meeting spaces or just looking for a safe place to sit. Public libraries are a human service. They’re a place where you can meet your neighbors for free—even the ones you don’t know.”
