The article about millions of people not plugged in to the Internet barely mentioned libraries. [“Web’s there, but millions in U.S. not plugging in,” page one, Aug. 19.]

I have been at the downtown library at opening time. A crowd surges in and heads for the computers. I have seen people at the computers at our local library in Edmonds.

Job seekers need to seek out their local librarian for help. Librarians are among the most helpful people you will meet.

Barbara Chase, Edmonds
