Move the museum, enlarge the library
by P. J. Travis


March 25, 2004


The citizens/residents of Ketchikan and the Island deserve to have the public library left in the current location.

Locate the museum some place else.

The proposed museum is for tourists - not local residents.

How many local people would use the museum? How many could afford to use it?

We want the public library left where it is - move the museum and enlarge the library.

Downtown Ketchikan has how many jewelry and gift stores catering to the public? Don't we, the local residents, deserve a beautiful and unique setting beside the creek with a view of the mountains for OUR library?

Have you considered the annual local usage of the library compared to the annual local usage of the museum?
