Re: Smaller library would have sufficed (Don Graham letter, Jan. 2 Courier).
The ‘glass and wood palace’ you describe is about good practical design with a vision for current and future needs/ population growth.
One cannot compare the parameters of building a house to that of constructing such a multi-use community facility.
Our long-awaited new library will also house space for other various community uses, with a multi-purpose room.
This hub is vital as is, and it appears that the realistic budget was within the capital funds allocated and arranged with the Cowichan Valley Regional District.
This is wise use of dollars and, in fact, looks quite reasonable and appropriate. Let’s move on!
