Libraries aren't becoming less relevant just because technology is making books less popular. Look no further than the James Prendergast Library for proof. Two thumbs up to the James Prendergast Library for its ongoing Critical Issues discussion series. On Monday, the library hosted a discussion on the topic of health exchanges that are part of the Affordable Care Act. Regardless of one's views of the federal health care law, it will affect county residents. Such forums make it easier for everyone to understand the law's implications - which is important given the law's sheer length and complexity. City residents should take advantage of such forums.
