“There’s this American flag, apple pie thing about libraries. Somehow they have been put in the category of a sacred organization.”Libraries run by LSSI cede control on such important local and subjective issues of hiring and even acquisitions, and, of course, LSSI operates on a for profit basis. Interesting that Santa Clarita Library Director Margaret Donnellan Todd says the perception is that there is no local connection, but
“People are receiving superb service in Santa Clarita. I challenge that L.S.S.I. will be able to do much better.”Is that view not a reflection on the job that Ms. Todd was doing as director before LSSI took over?
