Library need critical

In February 2000, the District of Summerland council meeting minutes state that the Summerland Library is too small

Dear Editor:

Back in February 2000, the District of Summerland council meeting minutes state that the Summerland Library is 49 per cent smaller than it should be for a community of our size.

Things have only gotten worse as the library building endures more wear and tear. The situation has been critical for a number of years now. We feel that any combination with large-scale developments for which no public funding exists will cause intolerable delay.

The Friends of the Summerland Library are encouraging the ORL and the District of Summerland to find a location as soon as possible, either rented, leased, or purpose-built, that is large enough to give us the library we need, and that we taxpayers have long been paying for.

Pat Flett, Friends of the Summerland Library
