It’s very simple to see that no a single uses the public library anymore.
When I was a kid, the public library was a beautiful place to visit.
It was filled with books, videos, magazines, & historical documents. When I was a kid, the library was consistently filled after school. Sporadically I sat in the building just doing my homework. The library was a few blocks away from the middle school & it was the perfect place to hang out with my friends when school was finishedâ€¦ As long as the people I was with and I were quiet, the librarian never complained or made us leave. That was almost 20 years ago, & the library has changed a great deal. I only recently had children & I decided to visit the library to look for some parenting books. I got a nostalgic feeling as soon as I walked into the door, but nothing at all has changed since I was a child & that includes the furniture & the librarian. Another thing that hasn’t changed at all is the heating & A/C system. The air vents in the ceiling looked as seasoned as the books in the historical section. The air vents were covered with dirt & grime. The cooling system was barely blowing any chilly air at all. I could tell, because there was a long line of cobwebs from the air vent to the wall & it barely moved at all when the cooling system was running. It makes me very upset to see the condition of the library & I wish the neighborhood will do something to restore the building & its satisfieds.
