A concerned citizen squints:

The Hyde Park branch of the BPL has over 25 light bulbs out in the main reading/study room. Upon inquiring about this, I was referred to the custodian who told me work orders have been in for a very long time and there are over 105 lights output in the whole library. Granted that a special lift is necessary, but lighting is crucial in a reading/study/research area. Please help get us some lighting!
