Not able to get Library for Monday evening and all the other places I called are booked. I understand short notice. I have talked to a number of people and our task seems difficult to say the least. At this point to get any action on a Library we wil need to go to the Supervisors first. No problem getting to talk to the Supervisors. The problem is getting support from the Lee county citizens. If I lived in any of the cities in Lee county I’m not sure how strongly i would feel about the need to build a new library in Tupelo. That is an assumption on my part but I would guess that I’m probably not to far off the mark. The Library board needs to take the lead and we can support and if they don’t, which I can’t imagine, we can lead. As far as the pool is concerned I don’t have an answer. I still feel that there are more pressing “needs’ at this time. The public meetings that the library board held have given the board the information to move forward. Hopefully they will move quickly and not let the momentum die. For the time being all we can do is address the City Council as to the priorities each of you feel are important. I encourage each of you to address the council on the18th and to do so you need to call Glenda and sign up by the end of business this coming Tuesday.and show up on the 18th to address the council. Remember they respond to large groups of people showing up.In the mean time I will talk to the county Administrator and we will see what the next move is from the Library Trustees. I welcome any comments as this is your forum, not just my thoughts. By the way did you notice on WTVA Wednesday the piece about the 300+ students that pay tuition to the Tupelo School System to attend our schools because of the courses offered. Not everything is a problem in the school system. Interesting.
