Meribeth Nordloef-Pederson said, “My husband works in Redmond but we choose to live in Seattle to be close to Cultural amenites such as libraries.” Nordloef-Pederson’s family uses the Northeast and Lake City branch libraries. She noted that school children with working parents would be impacted by less library evening hours and reduced weekend access.
“Coming from living in China these past two years,” she concluded,”we really appreciate what the library means to us for our personal freedoms and the financial relief of not having to buy books. The library, we hope, will always be there to keep educating and stimulating our families varied interests. Please restore library hours. Our family needs the library.”
