An Ideal Library Location
By Terri Jirschele


August 20, 2007

I've spoken with many people who have stated that they do not want the Library moved to the top of a small mountain or even moved to the West End. They agree that the current location is the ideal setting for the Library and it should remain there. The Library is the heart of DownTown. The landscape surrounding the Library is integral to the building's beauty and ambience. Moving it would be detrimental to the area.

Unless you are employed in one of the offices DownTown, what will be left to draw you during the "Off-Season"? The few stores that stay open during the fall and winter can hardly be expected to keep the DownTown area alive. Unfortunately it appears that members of the Library Committee only want to do what they want to do and that is to remove the Library from DownTown!

Whether you agree or not, please take the time and contact City Council Members. Tell them how you feel about this issue.

Thank you,
