This is a third public realm issue which benefits us all. It is particularly important for those who lack access to the internet and to newcomers to our city who need to contact various programs and agencies.

The library is absolutely essential. It provides such amazing services to the community beyond books - community space, computer access, amazing and diverse programming, the list goes on.
