Letter: Libraries vital to a healthy city

Letter: Libraries vital to a healthy city | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

A food desert exists when a portion of the population lives without a grocery store within walking distance and therefore, little choice of healthy foods. I argue that, should these seven libraries be closed, we would face the creation of a series of "information deserts.""
