Here is a photo of the new Charles Wesley Turnbull III, Regional Library and Archives Facility (NOT YET open) on St. Thomas, USVI.
It is the large building in the background.

+Sean Berry This picture was taken just up the road from the end of the driveway at Tillett, just across from the Dept. of Ed. building.  The library sits on a small hill just above the Plaza Extra grocery store. If you remember the windmills, they are just out of the picture on the left.

I live on an island, St. Thomas, which still does not have a functioning library. I have to agree with this statement and article. Although it pertains to a community in the U.K., it could well apply here.

As journalist Walter Cronkite once said: "Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation."

"Poverty is no longer an issue of 'them,' it's an issue of 'us,'" says Mark Rank, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis who calculated the numbers. "Only when poverty is thought of as a mainstream event, rather than a fringe experience that just affects blacks and Hispanics, can we really begin to build broader support for programs that lift people in need."

" If you start reading a book and you don't like it you always have the option of shutting it. At this point it loses its capacity to offend you."

I actually got one of these calls, it went something like this:
"Hello, I'm calling from Windows Technical Support. We have noticed that your Windows registry has errors and we would like to help you fix them."
I replied: " That's odd, I'm using Linux, where exactly is the Windows registry located and I will delete it."
At which point the caller hung up. Lots of scams out there, be careful.
