  1. Ben Franklin as you may know created the first Library Company in 1731 in Philadelphia. The Library was open to member and non-members of a discussion group, although non-members had to provide collateral to borrow a book, in case it were lost or damaged. It was part of an effort to improve literacy and intellectual life in the City. Members paid dues to support the purchase of books. With tightening budgets is many small communities, I’m rather surprised that we haven’t reverted in some areas to this original concept.

    1. Hi, Vic!

      Yes, I did know that he created the first library, but I thought it was a Free Library, so I’m glad you corrected me.

      I know that most libraries have a “Friends of the Library” club attatched to each branch, that sells excess books, and otherwise raises funds for the libraries. I’d much prefer not to see dues requirements for libraries, as that would defeat much of the purpose of the system, which is to ensure full access to all, regardless of their ability to pay.

        1. Very good point, Vic, but this is why I feel it’s important for all us to stress that we all keep learning in various ways, via on-going adult education amongst ourselves and in other spheres as we encourage them, by supporting public educational systems, and also by offering ways of keeping up our own shared learning, as you do on your blog with the various posts you write that inform us, and my blog aimed at other types of learners. We are all working together to encourage reading and learning, no? Perhaps not in an obvious or concerted way…
