Letter: Supports New Library
Published: Friday, Oct. 14, 2016 5:30 a.m. CDT
As a mother of very young children and a lifelong Crystal Lake resident, I am strongly in favor of a new library. The current library parking lot requires patrons to enter via stairs, or walk around the library to the accessible entrance.
Traveling around the library with two toddlers and a heavy bag full of books can be a trying task for me. I can only imagine the nightmare that handicapped or elderly patrons have making the journey. This is especially true in inclement weather. Although there is street parking available on Paddock Street, patrons cannot count on these spaces being available as they are highly desirable.
A new library would provide every patron equal ability to gain entrance from the library’s dedicated parking lot. Please vote “yes” for our new library.
