Ray Bradbury Loves Libraries

Ray Bradbury is lending his considerable literary clout to save the Ventura County public libraries, which are threatened by loss of revenue from falling property taxes. The 88-year-old author tells the New York Times, "Libraries raised me. I don't believe in colleges and universities. I believe in libraries because most students don't have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money. I couldn't go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years."
