public libraries have become de facto daytime shelters for the nation's street people; while librarians are increasingly our unofficial social workers for the homeless (and often the disturbed). It's a dirty little secret that tells us all too much about the state of our nation today.

I took my first when I was 32 and that aided me very much. But, I require the collateral loan once more time.

Libraries form an intrinsic part not only of our culture but also our community. Here in the UK, due to reasons of cuttings costs, quite a few libraries are due to be closed down, something which has understandably caused a bit of an uproar. I hope that the US will not go down this same road! Jose Amadeus
