Letter: Rochester library expansion not supported by facts cited in request
Is the need for library expansion fact or fiction? The biography of a library is a place where documents are stored and reviewed by individuals in a nondisruptive manner. We have many different library settings in this community to include our public and private schools, state colleges, universities, medical schools, churches and bookmobile, which are staffed.
Elected officials and educators in our community pushed for and received millions in funding for iPads and computers as the new technology in teaching and research for our students. Facts released have not shown the need for a $55 million expansion for a library setting. Rather the facts show they want meeting rooms.
The fact is all our public schools, colleges and civic center have all the space needed for our public forums already in place. As a taxpayer, I am not buying the authors' fictional novel titled "Library Expansion."
