I spent a couple of gorgeously breezy, sunny hours this Sunday morning collecting signatures at the Mar Vista farmer's market for the Save the Library campaign. Teresa (shown above) and Verdel of the Mar Vista Branch were there, too.
Folks were happy to sign, once they realized what was at stake - possibly hundreds of LA Public Library employees laid off, greatly reduced hours, a drastic reduction in storytimes, books, computer access, and DVDs, for years and years to come.
The alarming thing? Many people had no idea! "Save the library? Is it in danger?" Ack! We've got to do a better job of getting the word out.
