Yes, it's true. There is still another ray of hope for our poor, beleaguered Seattle Public Library System. It appears that The Gates Foundation has chipped in $50,000 to help the library's job resource center. It may not do anything to keep libraries open, or prevent a systemwide "furlough" next year, but it may help job-seekers around here. And those folks desperately need some help in these tough economic times(even though they're supposed to be getting better). I certainly hope so. And I hope the Seattle City Council sits up and listens. We need all the help we can get.
