Comments Off on Council to Consider New Central Library Bill Today

We just learned that Councilmember Kathy Patterson intends to submit a substitute library bill to the DC Council TODAY. The Bill difers from the one tabled by the Committee on Education, Libraries and recreation in two respects: 1) it requires the D.C. Public Library Board of Library trustees to consider the use of air rights above the new library site as part of the financing for construction and 2) it precludes contracting for the new library until contracts have been issues for construction of the four currently closed branches.

All advocated for library services are urged to consider contacting councilmembers if they have a strong opinion about this legislation and how it may affect the revitalization of our public libraries.
