  1. Here are the questions to be asked.. What is the size of the existing library.. What is the size of the proposed new library.
    Who benefits financially from the demolition and sale of the land of the exisiting library. What electeds have benefitted from donations from the entity and individuals involved with the library demolition/sale.. Is pay to play operating here..

  2. New rooms new two-story, service adding to people seem reasonable for communication.

  3. So,in other words :”What’s The Story With The Library???”
