Library ready for new era

Dear Editor:

Please join me in voting “yes” to ballot questions 5A and 5B. A “yes” vote will serve our community’s youngest readers with a new, secure and sunlit children’s library on the main floor. A “yes” vote will enable the library to offer flexible and comfortable meeting spaces to the entire community. A “yes” vote will provide new collaborative study spaces for our teen population.

The library plan has been carefully considered and endorsed by the editorial boards of The Aspen Times and the Aspen Daily News. Steve Child and John Young, the two Pitkin County commissioner candidates, support the library project.

Libraries are no longer simply warehouses for books. Your support for 5A and 5B will allow the library to respond to dynamic, evolving needs and usher the library into a new era of community partnerships, programming and collaboration.

Please vote “yes” on 5A and 5B!

Barbara Reid

President, Pitkin County Library board of trustees
