Library Use is Up Nationwide

A month or so ago I reported that library use in Cumberland County had increased sharply in these tough economic times. We expect that trend to continue.

Well, MSNBC's Brian Williams reported that this same story is being played out in communities across America this week.

In "Libraries Offer Free Relief in Tough Times" Brian Williams reported (in a seemingly astonished tone of voice) that libraries are "a place where you can actually get books free, then return them for the next user."

Surely he knew this already!
