To go or not to go, that is the question.

With all the talk about the economy and the recession, I cannot help but second guess this referendum's timing.

People around town and in the library world keep asking me "Are you sure you should go to referendum in April?" That statement usually comes with the codicil: "I'm all for it, but you know, with the economy..." My response is to tell them that you, the registered voters of the district, said yes placing the question on the April ballot when the Library's Board asked your opinion in December.

So, just to be sure, you have one last chance to tell the Board to go or not to go to referendum in April.

On January 21st, the Library will hold its next telephone town hall meeting at 7pm. Registered voters in the district will received robocalls inviting them to participate in the meeting. Just stay on the line. A poll will take place during the call, asking if the Board of Trustee should place the question on the April ballot.

Your time and participation are greatly appreciated - and will guide the Library Board and staff in the expansion planning.

The Board is set to vote January 26th on the Ordinance that will place the referendum question on the April ballot.
