Public library abuse

I have been begging my local public library, for well over a year, to order The World Coin News. I'd get it myslf (and the devil with the library) but if I get any more subscriptions my wife will throw me out.The Palm Beach County library director agrees that this newspaper is a worthy addition to the branch inventory, but all I get is stonewalls and excuses. "These things take time, you have to be patient."I have been patient for 18 months and I'm running-out. What should I do?Sleepless in South Florida.Your influence counts, use it.

Subscriptions cos money. Perhaps you can gift the cost of a subscription tot he library on the condition they get the subscription, or get it yourself.

Libraries are at the mercy of public funding, and in recession ravaged Florida, I can assure you your library and your request for a subscription is very low on the priority list.
