Reasons to vote for library bond issue

First published in the Times Union: Sunday, February 4, 2007

We two seniors will be voting in favor of the library bond issue on Tuesday. The new branch libraries will be fully accessible to all people, disabled or not. They will enhance neighborhoods.

Many of us who live in Albany will be able to save gasoline by walking or busing to our libraries, "the university for the rest of us." Young and old will have the latest books and information science available for instruction and use. Interest groups will have nice meeting rooms.

In this vote, as a community, we will be able to pass on what we always accepted as ours, but which was in fact paid for by preceding generations.
