Location of Library
By Liz Lybrand


January 21, 2009

After many years of trying to fit the new library into what used to be the "downtown" area, it is time to rethink the location.  It is no longer "downtown".  That is the tourist area.  The library does not belong there.  It is not a tourist destination. It is our public library and should be located where we can use it.

A recent letter to Sitnews suggested a West End location.  This would put the library  and parking within easy reach of all, and possibly reduce acquitition and construction costs.
