Irondequoit is under going a similar location issue in their quest for a new library. A citizens group has posted this video to YouTube of the top ten reasons why the two small neighborhood libraries on either side of town shouldn’t consolidate into one centrally located library.
This is a very passionate group and I love the fact that they are so interested in their local library. However, I’m not sure they’ve done their homework. We have a lot of statistics on recent library building projects in Monroe County and none of the circulation has ever gone down because someone built a new space. In fact it attracts a lot more people to come use the space.
