Hooray for Louise Phelan and Franklin Ruehl (“Casa Verdugo library must survive,” May 19) sticking up for Casa Verdugo Library and pointing out the solid grass-roots base of support and need for that library! When I lived in that part of Glendale, that was my library too.
OK, there is need for economizing in the city budget, but come on, city of Glendale, we all know there are plenty of unnecessary and unproductive weeds in the budget whose elimination can create the necessary savings. It may require more work to discover and cut them out, but that effort will be decidedly better than plowing up the grass-roots need for a good local library.
Besides, have you ever tried to find a parking place at Central Library? What would that be like if you add Casa Verdugo patrons to the mix?
