I am part of a grassroots collective of passionate library users who are deeply disturbed by the proposed $1-per-book inter-branch loan fee that will be charged beginning July 1st.
We have launched a website at http://www.saveLAPL.org to raise awareness of this issue and the fact that there is a virtual moratorium on the library buying new books and periodicals.
We believe that if the people who use the Library make their feelings known to the Mayor, Library Commissioners and City Librarian that an alternate solution will be found, one which will generate more money for the Library without putting the burden for fundraising on the people who can least afford it.
Please visit http://www.saveLAPL.org and let the Mayor know what you think, view the documents, read the testimonials and tell your friends to help Save LAPL.
