Sobering, indeed. Thank you for the heads up on this. I've sent the link along to my public library directors here in the LA area. I'm sure they can all relate.

I interviewed Ward about the incredibly trenchant article. Hear his comments on the April 5th edition of LibVibe: the library newscast. It's the second story, about two minutes in. -M!
