Column: He’s now a card-carrying library supporter

Wednesday’s column is an update on plans to close the Pomona Public Library. The City Council on Monday postponed discussion for a week in hopes of coming up with an alternative. I detail some of the city’s budget woes. Also, I take what might be termed an overdue (har!) step to support the library. Read it here.

    No accompanying photo of you holding your card? I carried one for years in my wallet and it must have been put somewhere during a wallet cleanout. I love the library but, like you, haven’t really needed to check anything out.

    [I did tweet a photo of the card itself and wrote that it might be a future collectible. — DA]

    Ay Dios Mio! What is one of the first words you learn in Spanish 101…la biblioteca, the library! My relatives all spent many productive hours at that library, except for a couple of “mom, I’m going to the library” ways to get out at night. But it is so sad to see my beloved city is falling apart. I praise the Tessiers and others who are investing their time and money into the city and I question the ones who say no to the transfer station or any other endeavor that brings money to the city.
