Vote to keep our valued library

Recently, every registered voter on Camano Island received a ballot which will have a long-lasting effect on our community. Maybe you tossed it aside as just a single-issue matter, why bother?

The fact is, without enough voter approval, the Camano Island Library Pilot Project will disappear on April 31. Forever.

Another fact — that you are reading this in a newspaper — shows you still respect the value of words in print. So do the many who value having a library of our own — students, moms of pre-schoolers, the elderly. That brings up another group. Who wants to share the road to Stanwood with one-eyed octogenarians like me?

Please, find your ballot, vote “approved” and mail it or drop it in the ballot box at the county center today. Time is short!
