Keep librarians in libraries! We voted for the Libraries For All bond measure because we wanted to promote literacy, community, social justice and providing information and materials to all, regardless of socioeconomic class. Taking librarians, professionals and experts on all of these issues, is NOT what Seattle voted for. We did not vote for millions of dollars for warehouses of DVDs or ebooks or anything physical. We voted for the investment that supporting libraries, and the librarian profession. Keep our libraries, not "gateways". Our communities are worth it.
