It came as a great shock to us here at the library when the Spokane, Washington newspaper, “Spokesman Review,” decided it would no longer mail its publication; home delivery or the Internet will be the only options.
Now I understand about budget cuts, but really? What about all of those who don’t have access to the Internet, or just really want to hold it in their hands and they don’t live in the home delivery area?
Well, the inmates of the Washington Department of Corrections fall into that category (NO INTERNET). So along with all the inmates losing their personal subscriptions, we here in the library did as well. So even as we strive to provide the inmates with a touch of home news we have lost one of our more populated areas, Spokane.
