Ms. Scott, congrads on keeping your job. I wonder why the system dropped you though? Besides the rumors, I would hope that it was for a valid reason. I do have to disagree with the current operration of the library, in refernce to the public computers. There is no monitor on duty, so you have some people that are on line all day, and I have witness people looking at *****, and when brought to the attention of Ms. Scott, she said that is their right....yes, and no, especially younger "children" looking at that filth. Also not really keen on the moving of the booksale, I will not be volunteering this year Ms. Scott.

Congrats to Ms. Scott and she wasn't dropped, the decision made by the boards was to split the positions, or at least that's how I read the article.

Libraries are on their way out. Kindle, Wikipedia and Internet for research. Why do we need this huge facility that needs to be maintained, heated, cooled? I know people will be in denial about this waste of money for the next dozen years until either it becomes glaringly obvious that the items available at the library are easily accesable elsewhere or they simply go broke. Nothing lasts forever and we should have stopped funding to all these little community libraries a long time ago.

It would appear that the Board of TRUSTEES once again can not be trusted to make any decisions that will bring the Library into the future.

Remember that it was under Tom Price and Tina Scott's leadership that Linda was brought to Jamestown.

Remember when the patrons began to complain that the collection was "going missing" and Linda was throwing books out it was Mr Price and Tina Scott that stood by Linda and said, it aint so.

Remember that under Mr. Price and Tina Scott that they shut off the security system in the Library allowing people to simply walk out the front door with ANY BOOK they feel like taking.

Remember that if Mr Price and Tina Scott had their way Linda would STILL be destroying Prendergast.

Remember it was Price/Rankin/McCray and TINA's decision to move the book sale to the Jamestown Renaissance Center.

Remember that it will be under Mr Price and Tina Scott that the Prendergast Library has failed to be a pillar to the community it was under Cath
