“This, then, is the state of the union:  free and restless, growing and full of hope.  So it was in the beginning.  So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith.” ~Lyndon B. Johnson

  1. Libraries need help! I love the library, and actually worked in one for my federal work study in college (all four years). I recently found out that libraries in Houston are not open on Saturday or Sunday–how crazy is that? So the majority of people can’t really take advantage of them. They also close at 6:00 at night, which means you have to rush there and rush through the stacks before they close after work. What a shame.

    1. That is a shame, Amanda. Seems like they’d want to adjust to include some evening/weekend hours, even if they’re closed a couple of mornings a week.

      Cities and counties are having to do some extreme things to deal with budget cuts.
