Light reading...

I had a discussion the other day with a friend who was worried that with a more libertarian government, there might not be enough tax money to maintain a public library. I’m sure he was correct. But that doesn’t mean there wouldn’t be a library.

We have several churches in the Hagerstown area. Some of them are bigger than the public library. Some of them have grown larger over the years, and some of them have grown smaller over the years. None of them rely on tax dollars or forced contributions to survive.

And as long as people feel there is a need, I’m confident they will continue to survive.

Apparently my friend has less faith in libraries.
