Your Letters: Literacy, learning, social and public awareness, if you can afford it
I find it incredible that your commissioner, Ralph Miller, was quoted, (saying with no apparent shame) People can buy their own books if they want to read.(minutes of Wadena County Board of Commissioners, Dec. 13.) A public library is an excellent model of government at its best....

Your Letters: Library a real asset to area
I was amazed to see the quote "If you want to read a book, go buy it." Can this man be for real? Then to read that $10,000 had been cut from the city library. Does he not realize that the city of Wadena has a real asset in its city library. Lets get down to the nitty gritty, Mr....

Your Letters: Check out the library
The comment by Ralph Miller in the Pioneer Journal of Dec. 17 regarding the cuts made to the library system shows him to be out of touch with the people he is currently representing as a commissioner. He stated "People can buy their own books if they want to read." Maybe he has the...

Your Letters: Kitchigami a beacon for knowledge
To suggest "People can buy their own books if they want to read" is a most ridiculous suggestion. If I paid $40 or $50 for a book I'd want to pass it on so others could use it. When not having the information here, Kitchigami found what I needed to complete a project in southern England,...

Your Letters: Libraries provide wonderful service
I don't know when I've been so angry by a newspaper article. As an avid reader I was sad to read of the cut in funds to the library. I do understand that it may be necessary. What makes me angry is the statement by Commissioner Miller that readers should buy their books if they want...

Your Letters: Reading is a vital part of existence
Regarding Dec. 17's article: "People can buy their own books if they want to read." -- Commissioner Ralph Miller. I have to assume since it is in quotes that he actually said this. Who IS this guy? Please tell me he does not have children, never has had children and never has been...

You Letters: Cast your vote for books
When time to vote comes around remember it was Ralph Miller who mouthed "people can buy their own books" when funding for the library was discussed. Serving as a commissioner is no spot for an ignoramus. It is time to turn Miller loose. Sincerely, Ethelyn Pearson Wadena
