Library improvements vital to Stockton’s future

from the Stockton Record

“In the 1960s, Stockton built a beautiful new Central Library downtown and boasted a top 10 library system in California. Today, we have a bottom 10 library system in America. It’s difficult to be a competitive city that attracts high-paying jobs with a reputation like that. It’s hard to address public safety issues when families and neighborhoods have few to no positive resources for safety, refuge, and advancement.”
