A new library is planned for the Fairdale community and a public meeting tomorrow night will seek public comment on what should be included in the new facility.
Mayor Jerry Abramson announced last month he would include one-million dollars for a new Fairdale branch in his budget proposal, combined with another million dollars from the previous year’s budget.
Library Director Craig Buthod says the current library is cramped.
“This location has served us well for the last twelve years, but it’s a crowed space,” says Buthod. “There is limited space for public computers, we only have seven or eight computers here, we have limited space for books, all of that will be solved in the new library.”
The meeting about the new library will be held Tuesday evening at 6:30 at the existing Fairdale library.
More public meetings will be held next week for a proposed separate, southwest regional library.
