New $2M Tri-Lakes Library in North Jackson dedicated

Published: Tue, August 13, 2013 @ 8:05 p.m.

NORTH JACKSON — Library officials praised the long-awaited new $2 million Tri-Lakes Library as an institution that promotes learning, access to technology and career advancement and serves as a community meeting place.

“We are pleased to be opening the new library branch, with its spacious interior and unique features,” said Heidi M. Daniel, director of the 15-branch Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County. “It’s a library that’s going to serve a geographical area that hasn’t had a library of this scale previously.”

Public libraries today are places where the community gathers and patrons use technology and increase their job skills, Daniel said during today’s dedication ceremony.

“We believe this library, like so many in our system, will soon become central to the community as a gathering place, a place for enrichment and recreation, a place for learning and growing,” said Dr. David Ritchie, library board president.

“Our new library is just a stone’s throw from our middle school and high school. I expect it to play an important role in the education of our students,” said Thomas Frost, a library and Jackson Township trustee.

How is it, every agency in the county is broke but this one. They hired this director who had never function before as a director at the same wage as the last one. Also paid her moving expenses. Now they build branch after branch with what money. Where did this money come from?

The money comes from the tax levy that the community voted for. Why is it a surprise now that they are spending money??

Tax, spend, tax, spend..........that's the way it works. The more money we provide the more they will spend.

In some cases they don't even wait for the money to be actually received. They borrow, spend, tax, borrow, spend, tax................it's all just magical and nobody ever has to think about paying for anything because it's all "free" from the government.
