Reader encourages support for library

Dear Editor:

Some decisions are hard to make. Worthy causes are in desperate need of funds to function well or even survive. How do we, as a caring, sensitive community do the right thing? A while back, I was part of a tour group of Shrewsbury faculty, students, and residents who went to Russia. We visited schools in Moscow and Leningrad, and during a tour of Leningrad we were told of the WW II siege of that city, where for four years no supplies were able to enter and starvation was rife. Despite the horrible deprivation of that time, we were told, no trees in the city parks were cut down.

While no comparisons can be made to our situation here, the realization of what is important to our sense of beauty, culture and self-esteem can be, and needs to be protected. Our police, fire, school departments are all vital but so is our functioning library. Paul R. German Shrewsbury
