The county commission voted on cutbacks that affected the library system as a whole. The Library Board then made the decision, as a result of those cutbacks, to close the Ooltewah-Collegedale branch at the end of this month. This would be a great opportunity to teach our kids about community activism. Some of the things you can do involve making posters, attending the rally and voice our objections at the county commission meeting on this decision. This is the only branch being closed because it is located in the county. A good place to start: Sign this petition that will be sent to Bill Hullander, District Representative; Curtis Adams, Chairman; David Clapp, Library Director and Claude Ramsey, Mayor Your opinion has to be heard loud and clear: Call and e-mail your county commissioner, the chairman of the county commission and the county mayor. Ask them to vote to KEEP OUR BRANCH OPEN! Chairman: Curtis Adams H: 867-7319 W: 622-3352 e-mail: email@example.com District 9 Representative: Bill Hullander H: 236-4571 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Hamilton County Mayor: Claude Ramsey (423)209-6100 e-mail: CountyMayor@mail.hamiltontn.gov Also a good idea: Call and e-mail David Clapp, Director of Chattanooga-Hamilton County Bicentennial Library (757-5320) e-mail: email@example.com Show your support and concern: Attend the \"Save Our Library\" rally at the library, July 14, at 5 p.m. Let the librarians know that you care. They are struggling with this decision also. Be seen and heard: Attend the County Commission Meeting Thursday, July 15th, at 9:30 a.m. Room 402 in the Hamilton County Courthouse Let\'s teach our children that we can make a difference!

Comments: Please don't slap the regular joe in the face again. Everything is being taken away from us and our children. It is hard enough to get our children away from TV and video games, please do not take away one of the last free oppurtunities our children have to expand their minds.
