Dark spot.

The Hood River County library, an original Carnegie with a view over the Columbia River Gorge, just starved to death.

From the Oregonian‘s op-ed:

Down deep, we really believe it should be the birthright of every Oregon kid to have a library card and a library close by. But libraries are not just cool pools of recreational reading; they’re electronic hotbeds of economic resilience: job searches, job applications and business start-ups. The Internet, far from killing off libraries, has made them even more vital.
