Absolute Travesty: All Philadelphia Libraries Closing Due to Lack of Funds

By Remy Benoit

Shame on you Harrisburg, shame!

I grew up in Philadelphia; was graduated from Northeast High in 1964.

I could not even begin to count the number of hours I spent in Philadelphia Libraries; I could not begin to count the number of books I borrowed and read.

Ben Franklin must be rolling over in his grave in pure despair when the first free library in this country is closing its doors.

Shame, shame, shame on you Harrisburg!
All Free Library of Philadelphia Branch, Regional and Central Libraries Closed Effective Close of Business October 2, 2009.
