Thornton’s public library, known for keeping students occupied
after school in this isolated community, may become privatized
under a proposal from San Joaquin County.
The rumor mill began churning through a mass e-mail from
Thornton resident Marlene Corbitt to local residents during the
weekend. The issue raised questions in Thornton on whether
decisions would be made by a for-profit corporation in Maryland
rather than in San Joaquin County.
