It got me thinking about libraries and the fact that many community members are beginning to fight having their taxes raised if it means supporting a public library (I teach in the only district in my state without a public library). My township purchased land over five years ago to build a beautiful new library on. Ground has yet to be broken, because the community doesn't want another tax hike--meanwhile only $14.95 of my tax money currently is contributed per year to the library. I'd be happy to pay $25.00. I mean, that's really all we're talking about folks.
*Off my soap box I leap*
Then I saw these beautiful photos of beach libraries posted by Huffington Post on Facebook. THE BEST IDEA EVER! Here are a few pictures I found online.

So, how about we support our local public libraries? In the comments below, post a link of your library and for my next blog post I'll share them with everyone. How fun! Librarians, if you have some really cool pics--like the sun setting behind the building or something like that--let me know and you can send the photos to me directly.
