Save Philly's Libraries!!

Just a short post -

The city of Philadelphia might lose all their libraries - all 54 of them - if a 1% sales tax isn't passed by the state senate.

Oh. My. God. A city with no libraries and, as Blogging Censorship notes, most Philadelphia public schools don't have libraries so students would be completely without library access. And many disadvantaged Philadelphia residents would lose out, too.

Please re-blog, re-tweet, re-Facebook, re-whatever this story wherever you are. If you live in Pennsylvania or Philly, unlike me, please contact your state senators (contact info and sample letters at The Free Philadelphia Library) and tell them to save the libraries from Philly Mayor Michael Nutter's budget (is his last name really "nutter"?)
