    Daytime homeless shelter is right, lol

    Unfortunately, my hometown just decriminalized many vagrancy ordinances. They did make an exception for City Hall though…

    I have been reading Susan Orlean’s The Library Book which discusses that homeless situation and libraries a bit so this is very timely. Thanks for the interview and look forward to reading the article.
