Library / Museum
By LeiLani Lake


August 27, 2007

Given my druthers, I rather have the library move. The museum is small and cramped and most of the artifacts that are available for viewing are being stored. Since our economy is now tourism based, it makes more sense to expand the museum in its current location because of its easy access to our visitors.

This means that the local citizenry will need to look else where for a library location. Of course, they could always consider revamping the old White Cliff School into a library. Heck, you could have different classrooms for different topics. Just an idea - after all the Borough already owns the structure; can't find anyone to purchase it; could always abate the problems themselves; save on the purchase of land for a new library; use a historic site; build an elevator on the side of the building to have handicap accessibility (the building already has wide corridors). Sounds great to me.
