The city is inexperienced

We do not believe the city of Santa Clarita can provide better library services than Los Angeles County. We do not think Santa Clarita has the capability to “enhance” our libraries by privatizing them. If the city did take over, we know they would slap another tax on us in the long term to operate the facilities.

Los Angeles County is an expert in running libraries. The city is not.

The city of Santa Clarita has no experience — none — in library operation.

So why do the city manager and City Council members want to take over our libraries? Money.

The city wants to gobble up the tax money that goes to our public libraries.

 It is foolish for the city manager and council to think that they can offer the same materials and services at the same cost that L.A. County achieved.

That would be like the corner mini-market competing with Wal-Mart or Costco.

We hope as many people as possible show up at the Aug. 24 Santa Clarita City Council meeting to oppose the city and stop it from stripping us of our local county public library branches.
