CLINTON - The Clinton Public Library Board and the Clinton Village Board will discuss a future relocation of the library.
The date for the meeting has not been set yet, according to Clinton Public Library Director Mary Bieber.
The decision to hold a meeting followed a Sept. 10 session with the Clinton Public Library Board, Village of Clinton Board and the Clinton Public Library Foundation Board to discuss the library's potential move to a building at 215 Front St. The building has been offered as a possible new location for the library. No costs have been disclosed regarding the building.
The site is the current home of the Jake's Electric office building. The owner has offered to sell the 9,600-square-foot space to the Clinton Public Library Foundation if the public is interested.
Although no decisions were made at the Sept. 10 meeting, Bieber said more than 100 people attended and several of them spoke out in favor of the new space. There was no one who spoke out against the move.
"Everyone was positive and for it," Bieber said. "It was very heartfelt and emotional to hear the public speak. I appreciate everyone's kind words and support. We would like to thank Brian and his wife Sandi Jacobs for hosting the meeting."
If anyone was unable to attend the meeting, The Clinton Public Library Board encourages them to call or write to the village board members and/or library board members on the topic.
