Time for our community to invest in a modern library, vote Yes
Pacifica Tribune/Letters to the Editor, print edition, 10/19/16. "Good investment" by Cynthia Sevenants.
"Dear Editor, I don't usually support bond measures, but this November, I will vote Yes on Measure N to strengthen local library services here in Pacifica.
I live in Park Pacifica and I frequent Sanchez Library when I can get there after work. Of course, I have to remember that it's closed on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and is only open late on Mondays (if there isn't a holiday). How convenient that our new library will be open seven days a week.
Sanchez may be convenient (when it's open) but it's a rather sad building with everyone on top of each other because there is no 'real' room for children's activities, teens and adults to spread out. And Sharp Park-- the musty, moldy smell is enough to get us folks with allergies wheezing in no time.
Libraries speak volumes about who we are as a community. Are we small and run-down? Do we stay stuck with the status quo and fall behind the times? Do we stay stuck with the status quo and fall behind the times? Or are we proud Pacificans that believe in and are willing to invest in a 21st century library that will be capable of providing the services that will allow our community to continue to thrive? Measure N invests in a quality library in our beloved Pacifica. I hope you join me in voting Yes."
