Come On, Not Again With Library Funding!
By Terri Jirschele

In this digital age I, like so many other people, read electronic books. I can't remember the last time I held, let alone, actually opened, and read a printed book.
Besides, I and a lot of people liked the old library location. We felt, that being on the creek was perfect! And the space was cozy; for wandering, and browsing among the stacks. But I, like my fellow Non-City Residents, was not given an opportunity to vote for, or against the "library-on-the-cliff". So - why I ask you, should I contribute to its general upkeep?
The "library-on-the-cliff" has double the floor space of the old library, so they can have lots of "meeting rooms" now! However they did have to decrease the volume of "materials" they can actually cache now. But hey, don't worry if they don't have the real-paper-book anymore that you wanted to read. You can download a digital copy from their catalog. Just like you could download a digital book from the Old Library, at its picture-perfect setting on the creek!
And lastly; why I ask you, should I help pay for heating all of that "high-ceilinged-windowed", "low-shelved", "wide-open-spaces", on a “wind-chilled-cliff”, above a dank, cold, valley?
