Letter to the Editor

Library editorial was spot on


To the Editor:

As a former Henry Waldinger Library trustee, I must commend you on your editorial “Village should commit more to library” (Aug. 22-28).

No matter how one slices it, juggling around hours and staff will not cut it. To save pennies now is futile in view of the fact that for a few dollars we may achieve a better working library.

Let’s not follow the path of some of the last village administrations, where the library budget we presented to them was always rejected in favor of any other department. The word for it was frustration.
