Editor’s note: This letter was addressed to Windsor Town Council and was sent to the Hants Journal for possible inclusion in the Letters to the Editor section.

I write today to express my deep concern that the council is considering closing the Windsor Regional Library, and to encourage you to continue supporting this vital part of your community.

I recognize the economic pressures that towns and municipalities are facing, working in a small town library myself, and understand that you want to handle taxpayers money responsibly. I commend you for that. However, removing a public library from the Town of Windsor will have a definite and significant negative impact on the future of the town and the well-being of your citizens.

Public libraries are much more than just books; they are community hubs, open and welcoming to all. The programs and services range from early literacy classes, after-school clubs, and summer reading activities to technology training, job search help, lectures and discussions on a wide variety of topics, author readings, and of course, materials for research and relaxation. All of this helps shape and support a vibrant, healthy, thriving community.

In support of the Windsor Regional Library and the Annapolis Valley Regional Library.

President of Nova Scotia Library Association
