The other day I was driving home and I heard a commercial for the county library. The commercial was saying how over 6 million people use the library every year and there are over 450k adults taking free classes and also there are 50k kids in summer reading programs. I thought they were going to ask for donations or to become members or something but instead they were trying to get more people to come. Now who in this day and age doesn't know about libraries? I mean obviously at least 6 million people know. Did they have some extra money in the budget so they decided on a commercial? I also heard another commercial not long ago promoting food stamps. Now it's one thing to offer the service but do we really need to be spending tax dollars to sell people on the idea of taking more tax dollars?
