Possible Closing of Sterling Park Library * Sign the Petition to keep this Educational Resource Open!
As many of you know, the Louduoun County Board of Supervisors is considering several options to trim the county libraries budget, one of which is the closure of the Sterling Park branch. As a former reference librarian for that branch, I can attest to the the fact that it is a much needed community resource. The library provides access to a wealth of resources to which members of the community might not otherwise have access. The library provides a place for teens to meet, keeping them off the streets in an ever troubled neighborhood. It provides a place for immigrants to work on their English skills, thereby better assimilating them into our culture. Moreover, many residents of Sterling Park do not have a means of transportation to the Cascades branch. The Sterling Library is a well-utilized branch with a very deserving clientele. I would hate to see the Sterling Park community disenfranchised, especially in hard economic times.
If you feel as I do, I urge you to sign a petition to keep the branch open.
