Sorry if I sound silly...but this statement accurately reflects the decision by the Cuyahoga County Public Library Board to move the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Library out of the Telling Mansion to a proposed new site on Green Rd.
You can see from these maps that the proposed location is FARTHER AWAY from all three categories: juvenile borrowers, all library borrowers and the market area.
So, the proposed new site is farther away from all patrons, the children who are patrons, and potential patrons.
Additionally, the current South Euclid-Lyndhurst Library is a short walk from the high school. The new site is about 2 miles away from the high school and on a different bus route.
Why does the Library Board want to move the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Library away from the children who are its patrons, all current patrons and potential patrons--not to mention high school students?
The fastest and easiest way to voice your opinion about this is to call County Executive Ed FitzGerald after hours or on weekends, 216-443-7178, and leave a message.
