Regarding a library expansion, this is a win-win situation. The seniors will get a new, much-needed, more easily accessible community center, and the town will get a larger, more comfortable library. I'm definitely in favor of both projects moving forward.
Library has bad plan
No, I would not support a 2.6-mill levy to pay for library expansions. Last time you printed somebody's fairytale, dream scenario for what the library is, their artist needs to get a tape measure. Do they plan to move the river and the 13th Street bridge, or are they going to move the building to get 70 parking spots? Right there by 13th street, there's only room for parking on one side by the library. If I was going to support any type of library expansion with my tax dollars, I think I would need to see a much better plan.
Library a resource
I would vote in favor of a library expansion. It's a great resource for the community, and it definitely needs the expansion room. It's already very cramped.
Center is adequate
In reference to the July 20 article regarding a new community center, how dare Ms. Orrell infer that the Steamboat Springs Community Center is inadequate. Our community's children have been stuck in facilities much worse than the current community center for years. They should go have lunch in The Igloo sometime. Our seniors are extremely fortunate to have a great place like the community center to have lunch four times a week. Why should another $1.5 million be spent to provide yet another inadequate facility?
More space needed
I fully support the library expansion. My husband and I and two sons use the library regularly and think it needs more space.
Support the mill levy
We use the Steamboat public library two or three times a week, and we definitely support the campaign for expansion of the library.
A community resource
I'm calling in support of the 2.6-mill levy for library expansion. We are definitely for it. The library does a great job for the community and Routt County, and we are all for it.
All needs being met
I think it's a wonderful opportunity to expand a library that provides so much for our community and our children. My children have been benefiting from the summer reading program for years. It's very crowded there, and I support an expansion. And, I support the needs of our seniors, as the library does. It makes me feel good to live in a community where the needs of our senior citizens and the general population are being looked after at the same time.
Two for one
Yes, I support the mill levy. Think about it, Steamboat: You vote for a new library and you get a free community center in the process, and both these great community facilities will serve us and our community for generations to come.
