We Support The Library’s

Imagine my shock and dismay to see a new banner in front of the downtown office of the Cass County Bank the other day:

We Support The Library’s

The sign indicates support of the library’s what? Perhaps the sign should have said the library (there is only one in town)? Or it indicated support of all libraries, as this is a national effort to address our national literacy crisis? The misplaced apostrophe caused some amusement at first, then consternation as I looked to see who was responsible. NEA? IMLS? Arts Midwest? Sheesh!
