Do areas with publicly financed libraries have this same problem ?
And, BTW, its way past "high time" that estimated building costs where adhered to.....I do not care if the CEO of that company giving the low estimate and then goes 10X over it, starves to death !
Our nation needs to build more libraries rather than sports facilities....
But the problem is, the libraries are empty....why is this ??
Are we a nation of idiots ??
