I thought I was the only person in town questioning the proposed library location. It seems our new library should be located (in no particular order): 1. close to the geographic and population center of the city; 2. where parking is available; 3. near major east-west and north-south corridors for public access, and; 4. where it can serve the maximum number of patrons. I can't be the only person in town who has thought of the long-closed Rosauer's building, however if that site has been considered, I'm not aware of it. Surely there are other equally worthy sites, far more suitable than downtown.

DFO: The Rosauer's site would be perfect for a libary funded by a bond election. If the library is entirely privately funded, the supporters can locate it anywhere, including downtown, as far from the center of town as possible.
