Region views on public libraries
Joe Poliguim, Crown Point | "I feel ashamed but I don't. I don't do things but read hot rod magazines. I haven't been there for a long time."
Mike Gary, Oak Lawn | "No, because I have the Internet at home and get my information there. I'm a magazine reader, that I get delivered to the house."
Tracy Benko, Griffith | "I take my daughter to check out books. Samantha is 8 years old, and she reads for practice, but I still read to her as well. We're actually having a new library built in town, too."
Neil Krooswyk, Highland | "Yes. I currently go to school in Palos Heights and use the library there, and I use the one here at home too. I read the paper every day in the morning."
Connie Shulton, Chesterton | "Yes. When I was in school for a surgical technician I used their computers and reference books. We need our libraries for reference access."
Debbie Talarovich, Blue Island | "I do not use it. I haven't used it since high school. I use the Internet access, but I do miss the library sometimes when I think about the touch of a book."
