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."
