We are writing to say three cheers for Scott Richardson's clarifying letter to the editor of HopNews on May 10 about the expansion plans and financing for the library. The logic of taking advantage of the grant as well as the generosity of time and effort spent by the Foundation to raise private funds to help with the project expenses make this the time to rebuild. The potential for this project being the catalyst for the revitalization of the downtown area is exciting. The idea of a centrally located, visible community center that happens to be a modern library with amenities for all ages appeals to us greatly. Please vote "yes" in the election for the funding for the Library Expansion.
