When the Lodi Public Library closes for renovations on Dec. 1, seventh-grader Rae’Moni Harper hopes its temporary home will be close by so she can still come study with her sister every day after school.

On Wednesday afternoon, Harper talked with her sister, Elliza North-Fauli, and reviewed her calendar at a table in the library.

    I'm with you 548.39%!With all of this talk about alternative energy has anyone given any thought to how much power could be generated by burning some of these books?Its questions like these that make me a life long Republican. Palin is the only candidate in this race who has even begun to consider this issue.Palin and that other guy in 08!

    Curiously missing from this fluff piece on the moving of 10,000 books to a temporary location while the library is being renovated is the cost - not just for moving the books, but for everything involved in the endeavor. Additionally, the reason(s) for the renovations have been avoided as well. Perhaps this was all covered in greater detail in a previous report in the News-Sentinel, but my search of their on-line site has revealed nothing (aside from one entry regarding the City Council's decision to "[c]onsider waiving building permit fees for Lodi Public Library renovation project." (October 13, 2008)With massive amounts of information available over the Internet (far more than what can be contained in any one library) as well as the growing number of homes enjoying a computer connected to these resources, isn't it about time the usefulness of our public libraries be considered?I would like to see the News-Sentinel publish the statistics regarding the actual use of our library along with a comparison with the number of homes in Lodi that have Internet access. My belief is that we will all be wondering why we're spending this money on renovations.
