    I absolutely LOVE the library! The staff at the Maple Heights Branch are always so helpful and inviting. Too bad Bill Brownlee voted against the resolution commending the library for the services they provide our city.

    We love the library, too!

    The resolution was for Library appreciation month.. what did council do beside pass the legislation to “recognize” the library?

    Have you checked out the articles following the renovations of the Library? They had the stairs “uncovered” this morning and I got a sneak peek photo of the new lighting fixture and saw that the walls are green upstairs (at least on the west wall).

      Resolutions of that type are official “thank you’s” on behalf of city council. It would be as if you personally told someone that you appreciated them. You don’t necessarily have to “do” anything, other that recognize the hard work someone puts into a job, which makes Brownlee’s reluctance to approve it that much more confusing. Both the director and the branch manager ( and I assume the staff) were very appreciative of the sentiment expressed in the resolution and, if memory serves me right, the manager mentioned it at the following council meeting. You’re right, it is true that the resolution was for Library Appreciation Month, but I don’t see how that would make any difference. Would a card given to your mother on Mother’s Day have any less significance? Besides, check the language in the resolution. Several statements were made in reference to the services that Maple Heights branch provides for its patrons. That being said, I have not made it to the library to see the recent developments, so I’ll have to make a trip today to look at them. Thanks for the update!
