‘Drastic’ library re-do is unneeded

I believe the Mercer Island library is fine the way it is and needs only to be updated and kept current. I’m sad that money is being spent beyond that instead of on something far more necessary. This is our community library and it needs to reflect both the aesthetic ambience and the particular needs of our unique community as it always has.

In other words I wish that like Seattle, King County libraries could be refurbished and renovated rather than remodeled and redone to look exactly like each other. I hope we can rethink the proposed changes to our beloved Library - particularly since such a drastic remodel would deeply sadden everyone I know who lives here and uses this wonderful facility.
