Rural WASHINGTON library patrons lose bookmobile, replace it with express branch

"I was concerned that there wasn't going to be any library service," said Kysar, who lives in Yacolt. "I called to see what the plan was, and there wasn't any plan."

At the same time Kysar was talking to representatives from the library district, other community members began talking to Jeff Carothers, then a mayoral candidate and now mayor, about opening a library branch in the rural community just north of Battle Ground, which reported a population of 1,556 in the 2010 census.

This is in Washington, just for the record.
