Busy day on the Freeways ends with a sad note on my Library's door
Busy day but it's nice to be centrally located not far from the I-8 I-15 and I-805 freeways. I used all three today.
Made it to Spring Valley for a school story and La Jolla for a business story. Made it with no time to spare to the Starbucks at Hazard Center in Mission Valley for my annual Yahoo Fantasy basketball draft. It's online. I had the third pick, Chris Paul.Thought I had enough time to make it to the Serra Mesa Council meeting but when I arrived at the Serra Mesa-Kearney Mesa Library the parking lot was empty.
I wanted to blog some news and I guess I am. My heart sank when I saw the notice on the door from the City: mire cuts are under way and two libraries may be closed.Man that ain't right and I hope my library is not affected.
In this economy my local library is also my local office. I've filed stories from my branch. Sent out resumes and generally felt good being surrounded by books.I don't believe the city would target my library because it's fairly new and apperars to be run well.
There's a play area and meeting rooms. Took a meditation class that did wonders for my worked up mind there. The Workforce Partnership which helps displaced workers has a small office there. Such a valuable resource. Please don't even think of closing this library or any library.
