The power politics or whatever that may be at play in this situation are outrageous! I was shocked to arrive at the library around 4 pm Friday to see a hastily written note that the library was now closed. Later I learned that our librarian is effectively out of a job on Cortes. Paul Brewer's note below indicates that VIRL plans to remove the library materials next week. What complete stupidity and disrespect for our community!

I'm sure there are perfectly workable solutions as Bill Dougan suggests. Why not move the the library materials to a temporary location such as Linnaea?

Let's keep an eye out for a library van. As Bill suggests, a little Cortes greeting party anyone??? Who will join me?

PS I've sent my letters of protest re Library Closure to Minister of Education George Abbott and VIRL Board.
