Prospect Hts. library spending is too high

Success - Article sent! close

We are seniors and paid $582.98 in taxes to the Prospect Heights library. For that amount we could buy 116 paperbacks a year at Costco -- about two per week. This is insane! Certainly, the board members do not have our wallets in mind and restrict spending. I wonder what the salary is of the director? It's time to tighten the belt, instead of spending more year after year.
