no money for libraries

Post 1


The city council of Hannover (Germany) want to close libraries. Hannover is so poor a town!!!
Since 1981 they tell the same smiley - grr.
They want to close the branche-library I am head of once more. It is one of the three best ones in Hannover, but the main-library is nearby. smiley - sadface
The people around start to protest again smiley - steam. The council resolution will follow next year.
We´ll see.

I don't understand why people can even begin to think that closing libraies can even begin to approach the outer wilds of sense as an idea. Do they really think a bunch of functional illiterates will be healthy happy productive citizens attracting good jobs to the area? Exactly! Ha!

Am hoping very hard that they leave your library alone, Sued.

That's very alarming Sued. I'm hoping that it's a false alarm.

Hi Agapanthus and Hypatia,
Thank you ever so much for your goog wishes. We´ll have to keep our chins up and cross our fingers.
