Letter to the SC Sentinel, 2/27/2022
The former Executive Director of the Friends of SC Public Libraries recently remarked that “Just like a book, a library should not be judged by its cover, but by what’s inside.” How true! She then listed study rooms, genealogy, books, a larger teen room and a much needed children’s space as reason to build a new library, away from the Civic Center.
Just for the record, all the things she listed were/are provided for in the Jayson Renovation proposal for the downtown branch, including public outdoor space. All would be rebuilt beautifully. All would provide space for vital resources.
In fact, in the present library we already have many study areas, a room dedicated for genealogy (or quiet study), a teen room and a large children’s space! All currently providing space for vital resources. Please keep this in mind.
