Citizens for Cherrydale Library Officers Meet with County Board Candidates
On the afternoon of October 21, 2009, the officers of Citizens for Cherrydale
Library met with County Board Vice Chairman Jay Fisette in the county government building. His remarks about our library were essentially the same as those he delivered at the
candidates' debate that evening, with the additional observation that he did not
expect the County Manager to propose any additional cuts to the operation of
branch libraries or nature centers, given the community's reaction to the cuts
proposed during the FY2010 budget process. The CCL officers expressed to
Mr. Fisette our desire--once the county's economy recovers--to have our
library's lost hours restored to their pre-July 2009 schedule.
In July 2008, two officers of Citizens for Cherrydale Library met with
John Reeder, who promised at that time to fund and support Cherrydale Library.
Mr. Reeder said during that meeting that he regards public libraries as one of
the core functions of any local government.
