The closure of the Hood River County library system is nothing short of heartbreaking. I still remember practicing writing my name as a little kid so that I could sign it to my first library card.
I'm now a novelist, and I still go to the library whenever I'm stuck looking for references and I'll never be as good as a trained research librarian. Not to mention all those books out there that aren't available electronically that I cannot afford to buy. In the internet age in which limitless information is totally unfiltered we need libraries to help us make sense of it all.
