Library location: Bank building fit for library
July 3, 2008 · Updated 11:29 PM
In one of last weeks editions I read of the closure of the Pacific Northwest Bank Corp. buildings, expected in "a couple of months." Further, that they would be put on the market.
The two story portion on the larger of the two, which was originally J.C.Pennys before the bank took it over, could well be the solution to the need for a larger library and should be very cost effective as well time saving compared to the many months new construction would take.
In addition, there is a large parking lot just out the rear door. The site presently settled on just doesn't have space for this. The second floor of the building could contain such things as, computers, reference material and reading/study and meeting rooms.
