My grandfather kind of insisted on it.

Yeah, but you're...

You're Tony Shaughnessy.

Your grandfather's name

is on every other building.

You're a part of the first

family of this community.


It's an honor.

I guess it is.

Your grandfather created

something wonderful.

That's, um, that's

actually why I'm here.

I'm the children's librarian

at the Shaughnessy Library.

I came to talk to you about

what a humongous mistake

it is for them to tear it down.

Thought maybe I could talk

to you and you could speak

with your grandmother

and get her to reconsider

extending the lease.

Silly me.

I thought I was just being

hit on by a very pretty girl.

But, uh... you're just

trying to save your job.

No! Yes!

I mean, no, it's not...

it's not just the job.

You don't need to worry.

You're not going to lose your job.

The city is going to reassign everybody

to other libraries. Your job is secure.

We went to great lengths to ensure that.


I work for Charles Harris.

Charles Harris...


Heartless developer, Charles Harris?

He's really not that bad.

This neighborhood, it needs a library.


And that's a matter for the city.

Which is dependent on what

the foundation decides.

The foundation has already decided.

No, you're missing the point.

The point is is that libraries

are a municipal matter,

and I'm sure they're going to

do right by this neighborhood.

After they get all the improvements

that my development's going to bring,

we're going to raise property values...

Hey, don't thank me now,

but this condo of yours here,

it's going to be worth double,

triple what it is now.

Yeah, but I wouldn't even

want to live here anymore.

Oh, come on.

See, now you're just being sentimental.

I grew up in that building.

You did?
