Though the numbers are unofficial at the moment, it looks like the community has voted to support the library bond issue.
Thank you to the voters of Geauga County! Thank you to the volunteers, staff and Board of Trustees who put forth your time and effort to make this happen for the community.
While I have personally worked on this issue for more than 18 months, the process itself started with the previous library administration and Board of Trustees more than 18 years earlier. And if you really dig back into our history, we have been problem solving the Geauga County Public Library building situation since our inception in 1962. As libraries all over the world adapt to the changing needs of the communities they serve, we will be much better positioned to meet those needs in a manner befitting the citizens of Geauga County.
Our goal remains the same as it ever was: to improve the county’s aging library buildings, offering expanded community spaces, an enhanced collection, and technology resources for all citizens.
We move forward through the county-wide approach to seeking solutions to this challenge. As we invest in our Branches, we elevate the standards of the entire county. All Geauga’s citizens will have public spaces where they can meet, learn and grow. We intend to provide high quality buildings and exceptional service that enable all Geauga residents access to information and materials.
Thank you again.
