Dear Felton Library Friend:

A reminder of Monday’s Library Board meeting, and links to articles about it:

The Sentinel: Supervisor wants a new Felton library to be top priority (Friday, Feb. 29)

The Press Banner: Supervisor insists on top priority for Felton (Friday, Feb. 29)

Help make a new Felton library happen!

Next Monday night, the Library Board will consider a resolution to guarantee that the Felton Library project will have priority over ANY OTHER library capital projects.

This resolution by Supervisor Mark Stone will not guarantee funding, but would prevent the Board from bypassing Felton for capital expenditures for other branches or Library headquarters, as has occurred repeatedly over the years.

We ask you to attend, and to speak to the Board if you feel comfortable doing so. Your presence will be a strong expression of support for this resolution. The meeting will be Monday, March 3 at 7:30 p.m., in the community meeting room upstairs at the Central Branch Library.

There is power in making our voices heard! Almost three years ago, when over 200 people attended the board meeting to protest the proposed closing of the Felton branch, the board resolved to not consider branch closures as a cost saving measure.

If you can’t come to the meeting, please email Director Anne Turner, with a request that the message be forwarded to the members of the Joint Powers Board. Her email is:

We also urge you to forward this email to anyone you think might attend or send a message, including people who live in other parts of the County.

Thank you for your ongoing support of this important project.
