Is library included in plan?

Is this going to happen? Is the library going to be in this
building? If not then go back to the drawing board and put the
library in here too. The concept is striking but the location
of the library is for the people of this town and I feel like
downtown is becoming nothing but tourism to the exclusion of
the people of Ketchikan. So naturally I want to see the library
remain here before the people of Ketchikan are locked out of
their own historic town.
A museum is more for tourists
than residents than a library is. I don't want to see a garage
door close on the tunnel every September but if the downtown
becomes nothing but tourism that might as well be the case.
Mind you I don't think there
is anything wrong with drawing in the tourist dollar because
this is the business we are all in now-a-days. This would be
a unique focal point for the town. If this plan does include
the library then kudos for you!
