  1. Interesting that a total of 79% think the library is excellent to adequate and only 7% think it is inadequate. Why are we looking to expand this facility?

  2. Rick, we must remember that this surveymwas sent out to property taxpayers. Many are unable to vote as theymare non-residents. When 180 or so voters approve this Library article at Town meeting, it is clearly a want, not a need. The opinions of their neighboring taxpayers are not considered.

  3. I am fairly optimistic that this library expansion will fall a little short just like the past proposals for a completely new library did.
