Lower Merion Where We Defy Economics: Bigger Library Fewer Books – The Past Preserved

WSJ August 29, 2011 ¬†“The economics of the book business are changing so rapidly the industry barely looks like it did just six months ago.”

But not here in Lower Merion where the EXPANDED (with fewer books) $9 Million Ludington bricks and mortar, paper book horse and buggy “Library” building nears completion. We defy crass economics in favor of the common good paid for by The Forgotten Taxpayer, whether he or she likes it or not.

And who of us is not impressed by the imaginative and original building design, worth the $9 Million cost and a few 100 year old trees, is it not?

And how much better all our lives are because of this EXPANSION. All it lacks is a bubbling fountain.

Are we not all thankful for the wise and visionary leadership of our Lower Merion Majority Commissioners?
