I am in total agreement with the host of "The Late Late Show", Mr. Craig Ferguson on the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) & owned by Worldwide Pants Incorporated, David Letterman's production firm. He has stated on several tour performances here on stage at the Winspear Centre that the Library was built to look like a 1950's medium security prison. He has actually gone onto repeat these allegations in his Scottish Soliloquy monologues right during his broadcast from CBS Television City in the Los Angeles, California studios.
It is my belief that what should be done is II tear the entire structure down & do what they did in Salt Lake City, Utah. Make it more family friendly. While the branch is being completely rebuilt, the satellite banches are then given more dollars to increase their resource availability & number of hours they can then open. As mentioned for example by a Mr. Garth D. Izzard in his story of the attempt assaults that occured on him at the Stanley A. Milner Branch, Edmonton Journal's Letters Page, Saturday, May XVth MMX.
Lets make he downtown library a showplace for all peoples. It should look & feel like any modern suburbia branch. Happy, healthy & invigorating in spirit IV students of all ages to garner new ideas and bulk up their knowledge skills exponentially.
Happy Children's Day David,
