Parking crunch

Dear Editor:I just came back from the Downey City Library where I planned to pick up a book they had on hold for me. Well so much for that idea. Every parking space was taken by people who go to the swap meet at Downey High School. These people come looking for bargains but are too cheap to pay $1 to park at the school. I have spoken with someone at the library and was told they cannot do anything about it. They cannot put up "Library Parking Only" signs. What a shame. If the Patriot would print the operating dates of the swap meet, it would help. I could schedule my trips better. -- Doris Hannon, Downey
