LETTERS TO THE EDITOR...Keep the library where it is

Full Text

(This letter was sent to Mayor Rick Bonnette. A copy was made available for publication.) Dear Mayor Bonnette, I read a letter to the editor in the March 3 edition of The Independent & Free Press, titled `New library not needed'. I concur with the comments made in that letter. Georgetown doesn't need a new, larger space. If anything, the current library appears underutilized. I have never seen it overcrowded. Even on days with kids' programs offered, the adult sections of the library are never busy. If the book I want isn't available in the Georgetown library the friendly staff has always been able to obtain the book I want through their interlibrary loan service. Keeping the library where it is adds to the charm and character of downtown Georgetown. If we start to move all the services out of the core, we will wake up one day to a town where everything is out in the suburbs and there is a ghost town instead of a downtown. Instead of spending a large sum of taxpayers' money on a new facility, why not invest some money in new books for the existing library? Deanne Peter, Georgetown
