Add a little grr to your Monday

I saw this article on someone’s Facebook page and I was totally disgusted! After Friday’s awesome video, seeing something like this just made me sad.

In St Paul Minnesota, they have replaced a library branch with…. wait for it….

A VENDING MACHINE!

No this vending machine does not contain cookies and soda. Nope, instead it has books and DVDs. I’m happy to get books in the hands of people, but in my opinion, libraries are SO much more than books. They’re places to hang out with friends, places to have a friendly person with a smile answer your questions, a place for kids to play and create puppet shows, listen to stories and create neat works of art. Its a place for you guys… YES TEENS! to hang out and have a good time together without your mom or dad watching over you. Its a place to read some cool magazines or comic books. Its a place that’s warm and comfy.

Unfortunately for Minnesota, its a vending machine.
