Letters on New Canaan Library’s Planned Rebuilding Project

NewCanaanite.com has received the following letters regarding New Canaan Library’s planned rebuilding project. ***

Dear Editor,

On behalf of The New Canaan Board of Realtors I am writing to you today in support of the proposed new library for our town. The Realtor community feels strongly that the new library will be an integral part of our downtown, attracting new buyers to our community, and will lead to an increase in home values.  This public space will attract people from all over the country and surrounding communities which will provide additional revenue for our local businesses. More than 1,000 people utilize the library each day in its current outdated condition which can no longer support the needs of our citizens. The new library will serve everyone from our young children, to teens, to the elderly.
