Colton City Council Receives Earful Over Library Closures

Link to November 17 San Bernadino Sun article, " Colton City Council bombarded with complaints over libarary [sic] closures".

Excerpt: Nearly 100 people crammed into the City Council Chambers Tuesday night to hear complaints about the recent closure of the city's three libraries.
Several who spoke said they were flabbergasted by the decision and questioned why other options weren't considered before such a brash move was made.

"There are things that can be done when you ask the community for help," said Linda Tripp, vice president of Friends of the Colton Public Library. "You need to reach out to the community before you do something this drastic."

May I suggest the free ebook "Why Your City Council Makes Dumb Decisions and What You Can Do About It." Sounds appropriate for your cause.
