Do It. Save the library.

Sometimes it is really astonishing that there is a place where you can get books, including new releases, books on CD and tape, movies, music, have them for a few weeks, and then return them -- for free. But with city budget cuts, the free part may not hold true anymore and some fear new costs might be added to a place that is already declining in popularity.

Today LA's mayor and the city council are hearing out concerned citizens at 10:30 a.m. for a meeting on the fate of the LA's Central Library, and the more people that show to support the library, the better. You can also sign the petition to save the library, in case you had plans at 10:30 a.m. on a Tuesday.

The Los Angeles Public Library is really a wonder, with seven stories of book choices, fantastic art deco architecture, free computer access, comfy chairs to nap in, more choices than Barnes & Nobles and, oh yeah, they're free.

What more can you ask for?

Meeting is scheduled to take place at 10:30 a.m. at 200 N. Spring Street, John Ferraro Council Chambers in Downtown.
