bq.I think the days of libraries saying, ‘We must have that, because it’s good for people,’ are beyond us. There is a sense in many public libraries that popular materials are what most of our communities desire. Everybody’s got a favorite book they’re trying to promote. – “Leslie Burger(Hello, Grisham — So Long, Hemingway?)”:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/01/AR2007010100729.html My library expanded back when I first went to work here in 1999. And we are on track for a new multi-million dollar larger building sometime in the next few years. The problem, in the meantime, is we have already filled all the space we left open for expansion originally. We have weeded along the way (Florida guidelines call for 5% per year as a routine matter) but we may very well be forced to do soon something similar to what Fairfax is doing. I am sure this is a topic I will be writing more about.
