Signatures still needed to ensure our Island library services continue
Thank you to all of the hundreds of Mercer Island Library Patrons who signed our petition asking King County Library System (KCLS) Board of Trustees to either keep our library open during renovation or provide comparable island library facilities if the Mercer Island library must be closed. The current plan that we’d like modified would close our library for up to year and provide minimal drop-off and pick-up facilities during closure.
The Concerned Citizens Committee for the Mercer Island Library believes that hundreds of signatures are impressive, but that it might take thousands of signatures to convince KCLS to change their current plan.
Because Mercer Islanders are paying almost $5M per year in taxes to KCLS, it is not unreasonable for islanders to expect that full library services will continue during a renovation.
If you have not yet met one of our volunteers outside the library, please sign our online petition at www.LibraryRemodel.org. Click the “Get Involved” tab and then on the “PETITION” link.
You are welcome to join us as we work to improve our library and our library services. We meet weekly and minutes of our meetings are posted on our website. To join our committee and work with us please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
