Another Fight Over Library Funding
They're gearing up for a fight over library funding in Kentucky. As a part of it, people are being asked to fill out this survey on whether libraries are totally useless or just somewhat useless. This is probably being sent around by various conservative groups to stuff the ballot box, so to speak, so some of us librarians are making sure that those who recognize the value of libraries can have their say as well. The survey seems to be for locals, but it doesn't say anywhere that only locals can fill it out, and in fact has an option for "I'm not in the jurisdiction."
I've filled it out. If you're so moved, do it yourself.
