Hey, homeless people need a place to go to the bathroom and enjoy A/C in the hot summer months. It is indeed a win-win... unless you're a tax payer.

Who goes to libraries anymore? Doing research? Go online! I see more people reading books in Barnes & Nobles than I do in the library.

The only thing that brings people to the libraries are free movie rentals and free internet porn for those who dont have computers at home.

With a dead antique section on US1, dilapidated homes in half the city, and empty homes for sale in the other half, you would think Dania Beach would have something better to put that money towards. Maybe attract small businesses? Fix the projects west of city hall? The list goes on and on but doesn't include anything as obsolete as a library.

Right you are. This is where the Pedophiles that live under the bridge go when they need a bathroom. Great use of public tax dollars.

I'm always at the libraries but they need to fit with consumption. These buildings are nice but an extreme waste of space; way too big and not enough patronage. And I don't know if staff is low or just plain incompetent;items are not checked in for weeks and movies are filed under "THE"......Maybe if it wasn't so difficult to become a volunteer (you have to jump thru hoops) there would be more community involvement.

I thought that there was a library on Dania Beach Blvd just west of Jai-Alai, why would they want another one?
