Letter to the Editor: Our library is the heart of the community
Posted October 25, 2022 at 11:35 am by San Juan Update
Thanks in advance to the good people of San Juan Island who are voting yes for our library levy.
You know that this library is currently in need of expansion as our population has swelled and things are very crowded inside. You also realize that our library is the heart of the community and a place to embrace knowledge, generosity, and caring for all our people. It’s an investment in our community.
To those of you who are wavering, listening to inaccurate claims from the naysayers, give the heart a chance. It is only going to get more expensive to expand; we’re asking for $12 million to be paid out over 20 years, and there’s over $8 million that will come from private contributions and grants.
Let’s get going on the already-purchased site to accommodate our new library.
We love our community and this yes vote is a way to share that you do too.
