Letter to the editor: Ilsley story headline was misleading

Thank you for your excellent coverage of the Ilsley trustees’ recent decision to pursue a less expensive path for our upcoming renovation. We are excited to be moving ahead again after hiring a superb new director, Dana Hart, and allowing her time to join the moving train.
The headline that appeared in the printed version of the story, “New Path to be Set for Ilsley Upgrades,” was accurate. Unfortunately the headline in the online edition was inaccurate: “Ilsley board votes to abandon expansion plan.” That headline has led some people — who did not read the article — to think that we are abandoning the whole idea of a major renovation.
On the contrary! A new, bright, community-friendly, accessible, and safe library is very much in our future. The expanded and renovated Ilsley Public Library will be a welcoming community center at the heart of our town. Stay tuned!
