Keep the Library Downtown
By Lani Hill
August 16, 2010
I love this town and support a downtown library. There are so
few towns in which you can walk to parks, grade schools, daycares,
churches, shops, police station, post office, fire station, bus
stops, apartments, condominiums, houses, museums, marinas, the
public library, and various other businesses and services. You
can even walk to Tatsuda's grocery if you won't have too much
to carry afterward.
This downtown character is authentic, keeps the community strong,
and charms visitors. Why not support and protect this asset
rather than dismantling it? Why not encourage local businesses,
services, and historical sites downtown rather than discourage
downtown s survival? Neither locals nor visitors want our downtown
to be a ghost town tourist trap open like an amusement park in
Why spend alot money buying land and building a non-downtown,
less accessible library rather than enhancing the existing one
or using property we own for more parking and a more spacious
Keep the library and the rest of our downtown Ketchikan alive
and well for locals and visitors!
