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
District 9 Representative: Bill Hullander
Hamilton County Mayor: Claude Ramsey
Also a good idea:
Call and e-mail David Clapp, Director of Chattanooga-Hamilton County Bicentennial Library (757-5320)
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!
