I am an ardent supporter of the library and its expansion effort. I am equally supportive of the preservation of our historic 1913 library building. But those objectives pale in comparison to the fiscal challenges New Canaan and America face by the pandemic that surrounds us. At this juncture I urge the town in the strongest terms to postpone any further funding consideration for the New Canaan Library development. Indeed please allow the consequences of this national emergency to settle before making any further additional fiscal commitments.
