CSNA Position on Branch Libraries


The Central Street Neighbors Association Board of Directors met January 12, 2010 and discussed the current City of Evanston budget issue.  On behalf of the members the CSNA board voted to recognize the contribution the North Branch Library has made to community life in the Central Street neighborhood since its inception.  Understanding that the role of the library is evolving and that the branch services are in many ways unique, and that this service has grown in demand with the downturn of the economy, the board unanimously supports keeping the Central Street and South Evanston branch libraries open and finding a way to extend library services to fill the unmet needs of the West side.
