League City has not officially decided to drop plans for a library from a bond issue that leaders probably will call for May.

All indications, however, are the library will not make the final list of projects voters will be asked to consider during that referendum.

I can tell you the last time I was in a library was probably 5 years ago, donated boxes of Texas Highways and TP&W along with dozens of books from my mother's teaching career. I often think about my time spent in libraries as a student in school and in college, and as a young adult researching topics. It gives me a chuckle thinking about today's kids standing in front of card filing boxes and using microfiche machines to read them. Research Papers actually involved research, usually at more than 1 library. I can remember going to the Moore Public Library in Texas City and then on to UHCLC to get information my school library didn't have. Students these days do it from a laptop or better yet an I Phone, I honestly find this kind of sad. With a punch of a topic on Google all the information you seek is available in seconds, it's just copy and paste from there. I feel that a lot of learning is being missed these days with all this at your fingertips accessible knowledge. The life skills of planning, asking questions, listening to others and above all completing things on time have been lost with today's generation. Back when I was your age, yeah, used that a time or two. :)

As many of you should know, I've been a proponent of direct democracy for many years now. Big municipal issues and spending items should be on the ballot. And I'm confident they will be, in League City. Now what items to put on the ballot this May and which to put on later and when? I don't have all the answers. We've been round and round about the May ballot. We can all debate between now and then. But when the time comes, just...vote.
