“I think it’s actually a good use because it’s bringing something to the community since it’s been sitting empty. It’s worked out well. It’s actually worked out better than I thought. It was in disaster mode when I first saw it.”

“I think for the temporary facility and having to stay close to the main facility, this is an outstanding site. It’s smaller, but the whole collection is still available. I think it showed our commitment to keeping the library in the community, even though it was a small hardship on the library.”

“My opinion is that this is a great facility to find in location to our old building. It’s certainly a great start for the business incubator.”
