[Susan notes: The issue of closing the library isn't resolved, but a number of people are rallying to keep it open.]
To the editor
Here in Vermont, I am looking at a picture of my 8-year-old self sitting on the steps of the Carnegie Library. In the summer I biked to the library every day for more books. I didn't quite reach my goal of reading every book on the fiction shelf, but I made a valiant effort.. Our Blue Bird group met in the basement, as did the Camp Fire Girls troop. We high schoolers met at the library to do geometry homework. Once we were so desperate, we phoned the teacher. "Where are you?" he asked. When we told him "the library," he said, "A good place to be," and came on over.
