Remember that our library programs are more than just numbers or statistics

library 053Patt Copeland voiced her support for The Seattle Public Library and the Library Equal Access Program known as LEAP.  Her bookgroup for Visually Impaired Readers “has been a lifeline to many people dealing with the difficult issues of vision loss,” she said.  She urged Council to, “Remember that our library programs are more than just numbers or statistics and that the library staff need to be nurtured in their willingness to say yes to new programs and not totally overwhelmed by their fear of budget cuts and reduced operating hours.” She concluded, “Please keep the doors open to our libraries and fund the importance of literacy to all our citizens.”
