I recently moved to Pleasanton with my husband and our three young children because of a job transfer. It wasn't by choice-it was it transfer and start looking for another job. We took the transfer. I really like Pleasanton when we visited but now I am having second thoughts since for some reeason, I have always considered the library a quiet place to read and do research. the Pleasnton library is more like a free baby sitter to parents who are to cheap to hired a baby sitter.
Just the other day I was in their selecting some books with my younger daughter (5 years of age) and the kids sections was like a elementry school playground with girls and boys teasing each other being very loud and talking about stuff us adults don't even talk about. I also observed a young mother who franticly lost sight of her baby that was runningaround the library--don't these people care about their children?
The Library is not a free babysitter though so many parents think it is--come on Pleasanton parents get your act together and spend time with your kids before it's too late.
