We may find out tonight at the Committee of the Whole meeting. The Library staff is making their presentation on how plans are going.
They should answer some questions first:
From the September 2014 City manager’s report: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=7452
2014 was down from 2013!
What about September of 2018?
The below is from the Library Board Packet for their meeting tomorrow: http://www.bloomingtonlibrary.org/Assets/files/bpl_board/boardpackets/2018/2018.10bplboardpacket.pdf
PDF page 12:
2014 items borrowed: 116,986
2018 items borrowed: 92,690
Decrease of 24,296
2014 door count: 31,976
2018 door count: 24,215
Decrease of 7,761
So why are they building?
Citizens who don’t demand it stop will be paying more in taxes!
Are you really going to let them do it?
