Library renewal is an investment in our community

To the Editor:

As the bigger world gets crazier and crazier, it’s good to see some local sanity. I went to one of the Guilderland Public Library’s information sessions about the library’s renewal project. It’s clear the project represents the kind of frugal, responsible, community development we need.

Sure, it may cost a little more — not much more than a few books, or CDs, or DVDs, or movies, a year. All of which may be available at the library!

But the costs are an investment in our community. The project improves safety, convenience, accessibility, and services at one of the few places in Guilderland where we can freely share knowledge, skills, culture, and resources with each other and the larger world. There will be benefits that we can see and enjoy right here in our town.

So please get good information about the project from the library. And vote on May 21 to make our library even better for even more of us.
