OK, defunding them, but why not dream big?

Can't Republicans defend themselves?
Republicans aren't hiding the fact that they prefer their constituents to stay uneducated. Knowledge is power. It is hard to push fabrications on people when they are wise.
So wait does this mean those ass wipes on the right are now going after Captain Underpants? What will the 6 year olds in my family read now?

Libraries are currently often the only place in any given community where you don't have to spend money to spend time there. They have become defacto daytime homeless shelters (which is shameless that they would have to be, but things would be worse without them), startup "garages", and wifi access hubs for people who need it.
WIthout them, many communities would have literally no place to just -be- without cash.
I love libraries too, but beyond my own personal feelings, understand that they provide something that exists nowhere else. It's part of the continued privatization of community space.
