Support Finance Committee's recommendation on library
To the Editor:
When I was five, I discovered a magical place in our town, a place where I could explore the world and be transported anywhere within seconds; a place with endless stories, adventures, pictures and resources -- the Rumford Public Library.
Over the years, the library has grown to mean even more to me and I know that many members of our community feel the same.
Currently, there are two recommendations for library financing for the 2011-2012 fiscal year. The Finance Committee's recommendation of $230,000 would allow current services to be maintained. These services have already been drastically reduced from those provided three years ago.
The selectmen's recommendation, $30,000 less than the Finance Committee's, would reduce services even further.
I urge you to support the Finance Committee's recommendation when you go to the polls to vote on Tuesday, June 14.
