the only good thing awaiting you at the library are bed bugs brought in by the homeless shelter people who migrate to the library after being booted out of the city mission for the day.

The library was built when Erie had a REAL DEMOCRAT for a mayor instead of a Pontillo sock puppet. It was something Erieites could proudly show off to isitors from out of town - the iew of the bay from within is breathtaking, especially at sunset. It was built in the midst of the 90's properity, homeless then were few and far between in this town. Any able bodied person who wanted to work could find something to stay off the street. I suppose it is irony that the building is now a place for the displaced to keep from freezing to death.

All libraries should be closed, with the internet who needs them? You want to read and keep a book, go to Amazon.

Libraries are for cheap azz people.

PERIOD!

Brilliant, shove your kids face into a laptop instead of a book. There are some that prefer not to have their books on a cloud. <cough> nazibookburner
