I felt the need to write this post because I don’t think many people in Troy understand how dire the library situation is. Even if you don’t live in Troy or can’t vote, I think this post will still be worth your time.
Personally, I can’t imagine life without a library, and I’m sure most other writers feel the same way. Even people who don’t like writing probably feel the same way! I know that a lot of my friends hate writing but still love to read.
Even if you aren’t a bookworm like me, I’m sure you have set foot in a library at least once in your life. People use it for everything- just to relax and read a book, to have study groups with their friends- I know I go there just to work on my manuscript sometimes. And even if people don’t physically hang out there, they still rely on the library so that they can check out books or movies or whatever.
It would be such a shame to live in a city with no library. I would be heartbroken, and I know there are others who would be as well. I also know that there are people who love the library with all their hearts but don’t even realize that it’s in danger of closing! So please, tell anyone you know who lives in Troy, Michigan and can vote to please vote YES on August 2 to save our library- and our city.
