These libraries and offices are NOT funded by tax money...ex-presi have to go out and raise these funds privately. I hope someone can chime in and say whether my view is correct.
Most are private funded. Please bear in mind, we are talking two diferent things. I doubt anyone would have a problem if a library or similar public institution in built in their name. These serve the public, they are not for personal benefit. Guyana is a small and poor nation and does not need to replicate everything the US does, but one should consider some lasting tribute too each former leader (LFSB, DH, CBJ, JJ, BJ) regardless of political view point.
