Laurie talks with Frank Little about the Multnomah County Library expansion bond, which will appear on the November ballot, and hold a light up to the neoliberal concepts and practices sneaking into our most socialist of institutions. For more about these issues see: "Notes of a Library Worker" by Ben Webster, which originally appeared in Viewpoint Magazine and "The Public", a film by Emilio Estevez, which centers around a public library.
