Your recent editorial said you encourage readers to vote “yes” on the East Baton Rouge Parish Library millage renewal in the upcoming election, and I agree totally.

You called the library system “the best in the state and one of the best in the South.” I have lived all over this country and have never experienced such an outstanding library system. It is, to me, the best anywhere.

From having, or getting, books I have requested, to the excellent staffers, to the outstanding website, to the monthly newsletter available at the library, it is the best.

I sincerely hope voters agree and pass the millage as they did in 1995 and 2005. We can all be very proud of living in a place with such a fantastic library system. It is truly a jewel.
