During difficult economic times it shouldn’t be surprising that many people have gone back to borrowing books instead of running down to B&N to spend $30 on the latest best seller.
One of my assignments as borough councilman is to hold a seat on the board of our local public library. It is a duty I sought out not only because of my belief in the importance of libraries, but also because of my fond memories of spending time in this special place as a youngster. Our library, the Andrew Carnegie Free Library and Music Hall, is also an architectural masterpiece that contains one of the nation’s most intact Civil War Veterans Posts. And it contains a 500 seat music hall that is a replica of Carnegie Hall in New York. But I digress.
