What the hell, Philly?

I learned a little while ago (via The Consumerist) that the city of Philadelphia will close down all public libraries effective Oct. 2nd due to budget issues. I can’t say I keep up with the goings-on with Pennsylvania’s budget issues or Philly, but surely there’s something else they can cut before they take away access to free books.  Right?

No matter. If you’re a resident of Pennsylvania, here’s how you can help keep those doors open and books in front of anyone who wants to read them.


EDIT: Looks like Cory got wind of it too. He makes an excellent point: one banker’s bonus would be enough to save the whole damn thing.
