Knight Memorial Forum Draws Good Crowd

Filed under: 1,Events — Patricia @ 12:26 pm

Save Our Branches sponsored a public forum at Knight Memorial Library on Wednesday, February 11.  Over thirty people attended. 

Deborah Schimberg, a co-founder of Save Our Branches, moderated the panel discussion.  PPL trustee Rob Taylor presented the library’s plan for a sustainable future, while Linda Kushner introduced the audience to PCL’s proposal for keeping all nine branches open and defended the economic viability of the new organization.

The audience seemed more receptive to PCL’s plan to keep all nine branches open than to PPL’s projection that five branches would be downgraded to “community centers” under the current library’s “sustainable plan.”
