Fox Point Holds Library Forum

Filed under: 1,Events — Patricia @ 12:06 pm

On Tuesday, February 17, the Fox Point Neighborhood Association sponsored a library forum moderated by local resident Chris Bickford.  Marcus Mitchell and Bill Simmons represented PCL and PPL, respectively, and Councilman Seth Yurdin also participated on the panel.  Councilman Yurdin announced that the Fox Point Branch will most likely remain in the building owned by the Boys & Girls Club, but negotiations are underway to restructure the rent agreement and install an elevator between the main floor (with restrooms) and the library, which is in the basement of the building.

The audience was not receptive to PPL trustee Bill Simmons’ suggestion that Fox Point and the other smaller branches slated for PPL closure be demoted to “community centers,” supported by unnamed sponsors.
