This reporter approached me to ask if there had been any conversation about a move of the library; I said others had been talking amongst themselves and I reached out directly to the new director out of respect. DSP is not proposing the library move but thought it was more respectful to discuss openly with the director, the pros and cons of the library selling or leasing the structure (given it's prime location) and using that value to privide ongoing financial strength to the board (something they are challenged with), particularly in light of the fact that additional retail space is needed and could also be a boon to the regions economic health.
The director indicated the board may review the option during their strategic planning as they look at many options for their future- that is all.
This was nothing more than conversation. -mark richard
