  1. Branch Libraries
    Branch libraries are multi-functional; they anchor a retail neighborhood, serve as meeting areas for three or four generations of users, act as informal employment assistance offices, unpaid teaching assistants, and much more. Comments have asked library staff to be specific, to identify books used in homework and to explain precisely why certain books were not available. Wow – I hope those people run their lives as exactly. Books do get sold when no one has taken them out for years. Teachers do give kids a little latitude in choosing a book for a report. Anyone who hasn’t used a branch library should take the opportunity to see one in action before sneering at it. And Metra Main Station or Brothers K patrons – that book you are reading is courtesy of South Branch library, just another way to make Evanston a little better.
