2. No one can say that "no one visits libraries anymore"
I'm in Central Florida and ours are always packed. We don't have a great selection of books or other materials, but people come anyway. Mostly the poor, students and the well educated, none of which are favored by the GOP or the New "Democrats". There's a crowd of people waiting for the doors to open in the morning, and at least a couple dozen when our tiny local branch closes every evening. The night drop sees a steady stream of cars. The library seems busier than ever-which is another reason why they want to privatize them.
