Anonymous Patron writes "Just how devoted to your library are your Friends? Diane Davis has you beat. MercuryNews.com Reports [firstname.lastname@example.org, lisnews1] that she sold the four-bedroom Milpitas home that she lived in for 15 years for $850,000 this week to protest because her city council didn't unanimously support spending money on its library.
Davis herself knows a thing or two about their value: She's president of the Friends of the Milpitas Library and a Milpitas library advisory commissioner.
Out of nine cities in the Santa Clara County library system, the Milpitas was the only one whose council did not unanimously endorse two recent measures to support library funding."
