Here it is, once again, Sunday — my only day off.
Wouldn't it be awesome to go to the library? I must admit, I think that quite often once Sunday arrives. Then the same thought disturbs my mind, it is closed.
This needs some attention.
Has the municipality considered using RMI or other tourism funding to support increased library hours?
After all, the library is an important part of the visitor experience. It's where many of them go to ask questions, as well as for Internet, wireless access, and with the best DVD collection for hundreds of kilometres, affordable entertainment.
It's where visiting parents and grandparents take their kids for story time and singalongs, as well as craft days.
But whether or not funding can be found from tourism, the hours need to be extended, especially to Sundays. Sunday is the best day of the week for me and many others like me.
The library is a cornerstone of community, and too many members of our community are not getting the access they need.
I would welcome anyone that has any good suggestions on how to achieve this to forward them to council.
Surely there are many of us that would love to see the library open on Sunday, including our bread and butter, tourists.
