County Board Candidates Discuss Cherrydale Library

In July 2007, the neighborhood volunteer group, Citizens for Cherrydale Library (CCL), conducted its usual pre-election query of each candidate for County Board. The CCL provided these answers to the Arlington Sun Gazette and the Cherrydale Sweet & Sour News. The CCL also promised to post each candidate's answers on the Cherrydale and Maywood neighborhood list-serves.


1. Do you support maintaining the current funding level of the Arlington County Department of Libraries?

2. What are your views on concentrating the County's library system in a smaller number of locations as opposed to maintaining the network of neighborhood libraries?

3. As a member of the County Board, will you seek to close Cherrydale Library?

This site is maintained by Citizens for Cherrydale Library, a group of citizen volunteers seeking since 1998 to promote and preserve our most important neighborhood institution. Contact us at with any questions or comments.
