There's a petition to end library austerity, which has been destroying the library service and community access to it now for decades. Libraries need funding to work, but they give back much more!
@vicorva republicans are working to end libraries here in the US too. I’m sure it’s all caught up in the same racist/classist reasoning of how dare poor people have public access to knowledge and resources.
@vicorva and the other irony, here at least, a lot of the libraries in this country were built by the rich!
And yeah the middle class think that taxes should only cover the thing they personally use. So if they don’t have kids in the school, they shouldn’t pay for it.. stuff like that.
Then they wonder why the library closed and why no one set up a go fund me for it.
@KARiley40 This is such a good point. :( By which I mean it's awful that it's so true.
