Appleton Public Library Director Responds to "Frequently Observed Misconceptions"
Link to December 4 Commentary in Appleton Post-Crescent, "Getting a clearer read on Appleton Library".
Excerpt: The future of the Appleton Public Library remains a hot topic.
Though a Common Council committee moved money for a site selection process from the 2010 budget to 2011, a committee is still looking at the question of what's next for the library.
A consultant recommended earlier this year that the city build a new library, but there's a long way to go before a decision will be made.
That hasn't stopped debate about the issue, though. Library director Terry Dawson recently addressed the debate on his blog, the New Cybrary, at newcybrary.blogspot.com, hoping to answer questions about the project.
