Salinas Librarian Comes Out Swinging

“We can live with the potholes. We can’t live with ignorance and we can’t live with gangs.”

She does a great job of not falling into the Internet versus libraries trap, and skilfully responds to questions about using volunteers in place of library workers. You go girl!
