Yes on Measure L -- Restore Library Hours

I'm a big fan of libraries and love to spend time with my kids at the Palm-Racho Park branch on Overland. But last year, as I'm sure you know, funding for libraries was cut drastically.  Libraries across the city were hit hard; hours were drastically slashed and many library workers were laid off.  I discovered this the hard way by showing up on a Monday afternoon to find the doors locked.  I've always believed that like a sound public education that's free and equally available to all citizens, libraries are a cornerstone of any truly democratic society.  On March 8th, L.A. voters have an opportunity to restore some of what's been taken away from the libraries by voting "Yes" on Measure L.  The measure does not levy any new taxes; instead, it will increase the Los Angeles Public Library's share of existing city funds.  It just makes sense!  Check out the issue for yourself by visiting savethelibrary.org or yesonlibraries.com.  And don't forget to vote on March 8th.
