Improvements are still necessary

Our new library is lovely inside and out. It is a great addition and an improvement to Main Street.

Dear Editor:

Our new library is lovely inside and out. It is a great addition and an improvement to Main Street.

But we were very disappointed to see, on Sunday, boys using bikes, scooters and skateboards around the building.

Bikes were on top of  the brown seating area in front, used to jump off and practice tricks.

Also riders with their  bike tires on the wall of the library from  a standing position  to do more tricks.

The parking lot of the library and curbing should not be used either.

Something should be done to stop  this practice.

Garbage was also left in the flower beds. Garbage cans should be placed  in front and rear  of the library.

I would like to suggest to the other stores in town.

Upgrade the look of  your buildings.

The Tudor style adopted years ago is outdated and must go.

Thank you to the library and to a couple of other buildings who have not used the Tudor style.

Heritage buildings are an important part of the city and should be looked after, but not with the Tudor look.

Many residents think that the municipality paid for all of the library.

To the best of my knowledge, the library paid for most of the new building.

The Municipality of Summerland gave a small portion of funds towards construction.

To all the businesses that have participated in decorating for fall, thank you for this lovely display.
