Using public library not a sign of poverty

newsroom@islandpacket.comFebruary 23, 2014 

In your Wall Street Journal section last week, a financial planner said she had to resist spending $100 buying books instead of borrowing and returning library books. She said the library always reminded her of her poverty in childhood. This woman deserves to be broke. I'm sure library users loved that comment.
