Doesn't see need for new library, more parking

Letter to the SC Sentinel, 2/20/22

I do not agree with building a new library. I remember the old Carnegie library, a lovely old building. How can we replace a library every 50 to 60 years, and call ourselves environmentally sensitive. And in 20 or 30 years, will people be using brick and mortar libraries? Many of us already put holds on books and run in to pick them up, many others check out books online. I’m sure the existing building can be modernized and upgraded to fit the needs of the other uses....
