Resurrect Carnegie’s dream

March 28, Mail Tribune:

In May we have the opportunity to create a special library district.

My main concern is for the children in Jackson County. Many people argue that we don’t need libraries in every town. The fact so many adults in our county don’t recognize is that these library buildings are set up in locations central to schools in all these towns. These locations allow students from all grade levels access to read their way to higher education.

If we don’t have libraries we will bankrupt the intellectual possibilities of our next generation. We love where we live; we live in rural communities. Children need libraries to learn, grow and be the best they can be by using their minds and their imaginations.

Please consider the detriment to all children without libraries.

Vote yes for the special library district on the May ballot. — Janet Siedlecki, Eagle Point
