Dear Gary Georger,

You are indeed fortunate in Seattle WA to have access to a high class =
library for fifty weeks of the year. We, in rural South Australia, are =
pleased to have access to a truck, decked out with shelves, which visits =
our isolated communities on a fortnightly roster. Our librarians go out =
of their way to give us assistance and service.

"Free" tends to be a relative term, often used when other people are =
footing the bill. Do you want a rise in local, state and federal taxes =
to pay the expenses for those two extra weeks. I think not!

Best regards,

Ivor Lewis. Redhill, South Australia.
