Vermont is one of only six states that do not give direct state funding to their public libraries, according to the Vermont Library Association. Should this change? Why or why not?

“Based on the increases in taxes, I think they could definitely dedicate a portion of our tax money to libraries. Libraries are a very important part of our communities.”
Leslie Rose, Fayston
“I bring my teenage daughter to the library and show her all of the books. . . And say, ‘I wish I had 10,000 lives to read all of these books.’ They have to be funded, just like museums and historical sites.”
 Pedro Vallenilla, Warren
“It should change. Libraries are an extremely important source of knowledge and it should be wide open to everyone.”
