Save the Borrowers

Kim Cooper of the estimable 1947Project has started an organization, with her peers, to speak up for the borrowers among us, people for whom the public library is a necessary institution. And just in time for National Library week, which started on Sunday.

Yesterday Cooper announced the launch of a new website devoted to challenging the new $1 borrow fee planned for July and other measures:

I am part of a grassroots collective of passionate library users who are deeply disturbed by the proposed $1-per-book inter-branch loan fee that will be charged beginning July 1st.
