Colorado Report charges library ‘inequities’

Gary Price shares an article from the Rocky Mountain News about a community group in Denver that is trying to get the Mayor to increase hours for libraries located in low-income areas.

“Sanice Young, a parent leader for Metro Organizations for People, or MOP, released a report Friday that indicates seven libraries in Denver’s low-income communities are open, on average, a little less than 30 hours per week. But 15 libraries in more affluent communities are open, on average, more than 43 hours per week the report said. The central library downtown was not included in the research.”
