Yes for a new Sequim Library

I am voting yes on Propositions 1 and 2 for a new Sequim Branch Library and here is why:

We are a growing community and because of that, we need to make sure our community library grows with us. I’m in the real estate business and I’m often asked by people moving here if I would take them by our library. As it currently stands, our library is built to accommodate a local area of 14,000 people. We, as a community are now more than double that number.

Our library is also a hub for community discussions and a place for summer reading programs. They also promote civil discourse along with offering an abundant amount of digital resources for those that do not have their own access.

Finally, the library offers those that can not or choose not to purchase books the ability to enjoy them.

If we are to be a forward thinking community I believe it’s imperative that we have a robust and well run library. These propositions will aid us in that endeavor.
