The Library as Poynette's Anchor Store
Library supporters speak. (Poynette Press, 11/8/2011)
Excerpt: Poynette village President Jerry Burke said the library is just part of the larger discussion about Main Street.
"The value (of the library) to the village is to create a magnet on Main Street," he said. "So that if there is a significant cost to us doing this, the value in it is, is what it generates on Main Street because we did it. The value isn't just the building, it's what it engenders, it's what it creates. And that value exceeds what you would spend on it."
