Central library sacrilege
The Central Reference Library, completed in 1934, is undergoing renovation. It will retain its essential character, both inside and out, and reopen in 2013. I can cope with that and look forward to sharing photos of the interior with you when it reopens. But what I cannot cope with is the appearance a couple of weeks ago of a French car on the entrance roof and the accompanying advertising banners.
To do this to a library, in my book (pun intended), is sacrilege. It seems that civic pride has been sold out here to the highest bidder. The City Council committee that allowed this, should, in my humble opinion, hang their heads in shame!
