Letter: Two Reasons for the New Library

To the Editor:
Crystal Lake needs a new library. Here are two reasons why:
As a member of the League of Women Voters of McHenry County, my biggest disappointment with the current library is that we cannot hold community meetings in this central location. Because there is no room large enough to accommodate a forum for citizen discussion of critical and timely issues, we are left with out-of-the way facilities or cannot hold them at all. Missed opportunities for discussion include redistricting, pros and cons of charter schools, and voting rights.
Secondly, as a resident of Crystal Lake, I want to see our neighborhoods improve so that young families will be attracted to our good schools and have an excellent, modern library to serve us for decades into the future.
Please vote “yes” on the library referendum on Nov. 8.
