  1. Question that I’d like to know.  Do circulation levels get taken into account for pioritizing funding?  Half of our neighborhood drives up to North East library because they’re open during hours we can get to them.  SE doesn’t have hours that work with busy people’s lives.  If the switch was made and shown to the county would that make a difference in getting us a real working library?

  2. I remember the glory days of the Southeast Library, back in the early 70’s when the basement housed the Environmental Library. Back then Dinkeytown had Perine’s Bookstore and the Westbank had Savran’s. What a time for the printed word!

    I’m not the biggest fan of Peter McLaughlin or big sports stadiums but I believe Peter did leverage money for local libraries and parks when the Twins stadium deal went down.
