Re: The 2011 Pierce County Library System’s Annual Report to the Community.

I was very impressed by the facts and figures in the report. It would be nice to see the Tacoma Public Library produce such a report. In fact, has anyone given thought to combining the two library systems since Tacoma’s system has to make big budget cuts and there seems to be a duplication of services?

This may be a politically charged issue but should be evaluated and acted on it if it is feasible and would benefit the taxpayer.

I love both library systems and hope our community continues to have a cost-effective, quality library system to serve our neighborhoods.
