To the editor

As an elementary school library aide in the Los Angeles Unified School

District for more than 15 years, I invite Supt. Ramon C. Cortines to

use his windfall to pay back the librarians who currently must take

furlough days.

And perhaps he could also fund those of us who run the in-school

Scholastic Book Fairs that pad his pocket.
