Storms Warning

“Ronda Storms(County Commissioner, District 4)”: is a member of the Hillsborough County Commission. And apparently is so bored with her position that she constantly finds things to raise an uproar about. This week it is about the selection policy for DVD materials in the “Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library(Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System)”:
bq.Led by Storms, commissioners on Wednesday recommended the library spend a larger portion of its DVD budget on educational videos and less on pure entertainment. The proposal still needs to be considered by the library board, library director and County Administrator Pat Bean and return to commissioners for final approval. They also need to define what is educational. The proposal passed 6-1. – “Ellen Gedalius(County Grabs Library Remote)”: Education is certainly an important role for public libraries. But it not our only role. Library Director Joe Stines explained that there are three: education, information and recreation. It is a delicate balance, but one we should all strive to maintain. Because all three are equally important.
