Library offers a welcome respite in current times

Print Article

I usually write these letters to be against others, their position, a cause or interest I find wrong or unfair. Here, however, I’d like to take a positive road.

Last year, the our library expanded its facility without asking for increased taxes. I applaud them for that. In addition, however, I’d like to make the observation of how fortunate we are to have such a facility which usually only larger towns can boost of.

I applaud the East Bonner County Library District team and the offerings that I have only scratched the surface of. Maybe sometime I’ll try the VR room.

In any event, our library offers a peaceful respite and civilized refuge from the often harsh atmosphere of not only the struggles of daily life, but the let’s say less-than-congenial political atmosphere we currently find ourselves in.
