Library Services are Not merely "bourgeois" institutions!

It does not make sense to cut the library system's budget further. The library provides a great return on each dollar in elevating the poor, the illiterate, the failing student population and other underserved groups -- providing a pathway into success within our democratic values based society. Some middle class individuals and groups see the Seattle Public Library as a needless luxury -- but it has served in raising the American underclass since the days of Benjamin Franklin. Please think about it when you vote for the new budget! Thank you.
