I will gladly pay my taxes to give our town this year-round library

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

I am writing this letter out of concern for the Gilmanton Year-Round Library.

As a non-reader I still realize the importance of a library. I do read, but most of my reading is how to make wine and manuals to repair my equipment at the vineyard.

As a landowner and resident of Gilmanton, I am very excited to have such a well run, fully operational library that is fully committed to our community. With such a nice faculty I find it attractive to our younger families as well as our older residents. What a great way to show future residents and outsiders that our community cares by ensuring we continue to have such a great library and facility to offer our community. Knowledge is a tool that should not be wasted.

I will gladly and proudly pay my taxes and whatever else it takes to give our community the year-round library. If we, as residents, do not care enough to give our best, then how can we expect younger families to stay and mature residents to have a place to enjoy.

Marshall Bishop
