Odds stacked against libraries as cities feel pinch

Detroit News – “Troy— Draga Palincas says she may have to start buying books she used to borrow when the city library closes in a few weeks. But she worries about people who don’t have that option.

“A lot of people use this library — all different types, from old to young,” said Palincas, a 44-year-old mother of three, during a recent trip to the library on Big Beaver Road. “You’ve got people who can use bookstores, but then there’s people who can’t necessarily afford to buy a lot of books. And children need to be exposed to new books.”
