come early if you can
And Ask The Hard Questions!
This is the most important chance you'll have to make your voice heard!
Why is this community forum being held after the fact rather than before RFID was bought and installed for $643,000 of our taxes? What are the labor and maintenance cost overruns?
How can the library guarantee our privacy threatened by government agents and/or criminals with portable scanners? Has the City of Berkeley accepted a free server from Homeland Security and if so will the Berkeley library computer be connected to it?
After how much time can male and female library workers expect their coworkers to come down with breast cancer, memory problems, immune system disfunction and/or brain tumors?
What protections will there be for children, the elderly, disabled, those already battling cancer?
