Current library woefully inadequate

As a frequent user of the Basalt library and a participant in the adult literacy program also at the library, I am distressed by the woefully inadequate facilities presently available at the library.

The library is very heavily used and greatly appreciated by the community. It is imperative that the ballot questions regarding funding for a new library by passed.

There is considerable controversy regarding the location of the library, and none of the solutions will please all of the users of the library. However, most of the community agrees that a newer, larger facility is needed.

Unless the measures are passed at this election there will be an unacceptable delay in getting this new facility, and we will be forced to live with our outdated, inadequate library for the foreseeable future.
