Vote YES for a New Library – from Dan

Dear Chenoans, 

On Tuesday, November 6, Chenoa voters will have the opportunity to support a bond referendum that will provide our community with not only a new library but a facility that will serve as a center of community activity for many generations to follow. This structure will be accessible to all of our residents. After years of research, investigation, and planning, the Chenoa Library Board of Trustees is offering to our community a means to fund, build, and complete the project. The referendum has unfortunately become necessary because fundraising efforts have not met the lowest bid proposed by an area contractor.

The top priority in the planning of the new library is to have a completely accessible building for Chenoa. The new library has been designed by architect, Mr. Russel Francois, and has a 1,500 square foot children’s area, an 800 square foot community room, areas for adult reading and study, along with space for accessible shelving and technology. Due to the diligence of our director, Ms. Sheryl Siebert, the furniture has been very economically secured through transactions with other libraries.

I cannot emphasize enough to our community that our new library will not just be a “house of books”. Our new facility will truly be an active center of community learning and socializing for many, many years to come. I sincerely believe that construction of the library will create countless learning opportunities for us all – including many that we have not even considered!

We have published the figures and realize the sacrifice that we are asking. I am still convinced that a successful vote for the building of our new library will be a benefit to every resident and the community of Chenoa. I hope that you will join me in voting “Yes” on November 6th.

See the Moon through a Telescope and Hear Astronomer Lee Green

If you want to hear Lee Green, the solar eclipse astronomer who spoke to us last year, put Oct. 20 on your calendar.  We will have child crafts at 6:30 and Lee at 7:00 pm.  He will be at the library to talk about the International Night of the Moon.  Guess what – HE IS BRINGING HIS TELESCOPE again.
