KPL to be commended not condemned.


The July 3, 2006 Record
editorial “The
library’s fiction”
is not quite accurate. 
While the studies and the library board did say that the present library
could not be expanded up, they did not architecturally rule out expanding out.
In fact, t
he 2003 Walter Fedy Partnership feasibility
study recommended that a new central library be built adjacent to the Queen
Street location.  I strongly supported
this recommendation as did many of the other respondents to the recent public consultation.
 The majority of respondents were in
favour of renovating and expanding the present building. The library board and
Mayor Carl Zehr are to be commended for listening to the people of Kitchener.  They still have my trust  I am confident that an innovative approach by
the library board  to renovating and
expanding the present main library will result in a central library capable of
meeting our needs for years to come and public library service will continue to
be the most appreciated municipal service in Kitchener.

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Pooka, a small but fierce gray tabby. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
