There’s no need for library expansion

Dear Editor:

I’ve always been glad that our community has seen fit to support our library with a stable funding source (property tax).

So I do not understand why our capacious library with its windfall $5 million building endowment is asking us for more money.

If it had been given a $10 million endowment, should it try for a $20 million expansion? The hospital, the airport, the library: all supersizing. Must be contagious.
