Reader Wants Meaford Library to Join OSNGUPL

Dear Editor,

Some weeks ago you mentioned in your editorial that libraries are expensive propositions, and rarely generate any income.

I just wish the people of Meaford would take a good hard look at the economics of supporting a "full service" library in a town of 10,000 residents. Let's join the North Union Libraries to share the costs as well as the services. The economics of scale has never been more evident as it is with libraries.

Library Blues in the Blue Mountains

To the Editor of the Meaford Independent,

It's been heartening for us in The Town of the Blue Mountains to read your paper's well-reported coverage of the recent crisis in the Meaford library board and its swift resolution. In addition to showing you believe in the importance of libraries, your reports demonstrate two things that we have yet to learn here: first, that it's not uncommon for library boards and the councils that appoint them to have serious disagreements; and second, that the best resolution to any library conflict or crisis is almost always to be found in compliance with the Public Libraries Act (PLA) and the board's own bylaws.

For that to happen, cool heads and goodwill have to prevail, and that ultimately seems to have been the case in Meaford, despite a few missteps along the way.

Not so much in Thornbury.
