Gas and time are precious

Today I tried to go to the library. Unfortunately for me, I was doing this in the morning — trying to grocery-shop, fill prescriptions, gas the car and pick up a few books, all in one trip.

Why are our two local libraries in the Montrose-La Crescenta area not open until 11 a.m. or 1 p.m.? We old codgers like to get all our business completed before the mass of high schoolers get out on the road, which starts at noon.

We pay our fair share in property taxes, which support the library system. Therefore we should have at least one early morning opening — 10 a.m. on a week day would be lovely. That way, all errands and business could be completed in one trip.

I know I could drive to La Cañada Flintridge to accomplish this wish, but why do that, when I live two miles from the Montrose branch? Hey, folks, gas and time are precious.
