There are more pressing issues than the libraries and there finances.

So you want us to give you more money for the library? We can't afford to! We have to support the fishing for outsiders thus giving $75,000.00 of your taxpayer's money so they can have a good time. After all, we have to set priorities...

I think it's funny to host a fishing party with tens of thousands of tax payer dollars to line the pockets of like six businessmen in town. hahahahah

What in the hell are the libraries used for these days? Something else they want to bleed money for. Use your phone or computer on the internet in the comfort of your recliner. Screw the library. Antiquated method.

Libraries don't create jobs or help the economy. They don't draw tourists or promote the economy in any way. The legislature has its priorities right on target by funding a large and important event like this.
