Build a resource Arlington

We have the opportunity to build a resource for our children, our parents, ourselves. I'm talking about the request to build a new public library one that will provide enough space for fun, educational programs; more room for computers so that students can do their homework; more space for books, magazines, videos and CDs, and more reference materials (yes, there are still many of us who prefer to actually hold a book in our hands when we're looking for answers or to copy a pattern or recipe from a book rather than spending time on line).

The new library will free up the existing building which will serve as a new community center a space that can accommodate meetings, art displays, a gathering of people with common interests an asset for our community uses.

Even though I'm retired, on a fixed income and we as a community have recently voted to expand the hospital and to continue supporting our schools, when I look at the modest amount this new library will add to my budget, I really can't say no. Think about it only about 12-14 cents a day buys a new library.

Please join me in saying Yes to a new library. Together we can make it happen.
