Dear Directors:
Sadly, the Hood River County Library is now closed. I understand there will be a meeting on July 12th that will determine what happens next. There is hope for a November election that might reopen the library next year. Stay tuned.

In the meantime I wanted to share the attached clipping from the Hood River News -- an opinion piece by Kathy Watson of Hood River. She provides a strong argument for why library service must continue to be free. I know all of you, from time to time, run into the suggestion that libraries begin charging for basic services. You might want to hang on to this.

Jim Scheppke, State Librarian
Oregon State Library
