Letter to the editor: Ilsley project merits support

Because I am not a resident of Middlebury, I do not have a vote on the bond issue for the Ilsley Library renovation and expansion. I hope the bond vote carries, however. The library is an amazing regional resource, used by residents of many towns surrounding Middlebury.

If the bond issue passes, I hope library users from surrounding towns will consider voluntarily supporting the capital campaign which will follow. Areawide support will be an important part of funding this much-needed project.
