Don't turn the clock back on the library, support levy lid lift | Letters

Those of us who have lived here for a few decades remember when our library was located in the present Town Council meeting room, was open two afternoons a week, was staffed entirely by non-professional volunteers — and the collection seemed to have come from someone's attic.

I think it was operated by the American Legion Auxiliary at that time, and I thank them for their efforts against enormous odds.

But it does make me grateful for our present tax-supported library district, and our professional staff, and our well-trained volunteers, and the great collection of books and DVDs.

Let's keep what we've got by voting in support of the levy lid lift.
