About seven bazillion ads and letters later, I’m hoping this is short enough (and absolutely important enough) to encourage Los Alamos County residents to support Library GO Bond Issue B on Nov. 4.
In this year’s annual library report, dependence on our library system was confirmed:
- 16,718 registered users
- 26,170 reference questions
- 314,612 library visits (87% of county residents are users)
- 21,191 program attendees
- 26,898 public internet computers users
Any long-time resident knows our circulation is roughly 3x the national average. Both information and literacy are important to us and have been critical here since the 1940s.
In addition to a public library system, Los Alamos County is gifted with both public school and university-level (UNM-LA) libraries reflected by excellent test results, literacy levels, and research availability through multiple sources. These libraries need our help, too.
The critical need for passing Library GO Bond Issue B remains. Please vote YES. Expanding on the details of the three library systems benefitting from a passed GO Bond Issue B makes for a great reference question – at the library!
