Great letter to the editor in the Star Phoenix, posted Apr 17, entitled “Checking Morgan’s Library Facts”
Here’s an excerpt:
In 2009, I had a library card for my home in Saskatoon, another for my home in Val Marie, and a third for visiting Regina. Now I have one card and can use it anywhere in Saskatchewan. This is 67 per cent fewer library cards for me alone. I don’t think the minister has statistics to prove my experience is unique. Even if his numbers are accurate — he didn’t state where they came from — a difference of 175,000 library cards over 10 years is one card for every 65 people, or approximately the amount that would be created by eliminating duplication.
