My wife and I decided to spend a quiet hour of reading at the Bluffton library on a recent Sunday. We were startled to find the parking lot desolate. My wife checked the sign on the front door and found the library was closed.
Closed on Sunday? That's like saying McDonald's doesn't sell hamburgers anymore.
An accessible library is a community treasure. It's where students go for research, where the elderly go to spend some leisure time and where we all go to enjoy the companionship of good books.
If local government officials need to make budget cuts, they can't be at the expense of our library. It's an essential part of our lives.
