Tonight I was honored with a chair at the Minneapolis Public Library. Many thanks to the Willis and Sissel families (and mom and dad) for this tremendous honor.
During the ceremony a library representative noted that despite our reputation as one of the most literate cities in the country, our libraries have some of the worst hours of any major system in America. Since 2003, Minneapolis library funding has been cut by nearly three million dollars. For folks that are concerned about this growing problem, please visit The Friends of the Minneapolis Public Library.
