"If you care, your job is not done. Certainly out of 12 sewage meetings a year, you could attend one or two of them to determine if you are satisfied that they are treating the users fairly and uniformly and that meetings are conducted in a professional manner."Gavazzi also criticized the board's selection process for authority appointments.

"The push came when one of our patrons, who also uses the Ridgway library, asked if he could do the same thing here – if he could donate the money to be the first on the list for the new author."Swope noted that the program has been going on for close to a year, though so far only a handful of authors have been adopted.
