To the editor:

We would like to express our gratitude for the passage of the recent levy on behalf of the Westerville Public Library.

Realizing this is an act of sacrifice for many in a time of economic downturn, we humbly accept the responsibility entrusted to us and pledge to oversee these new funds in a way that benefits all who live in the community.

A public library should be a support resource available to everyone, especially in bad times. We will work to continue and expand those resources for all of you because this is your facility, whether you were able to vote for the issue or not.

Westerville is a wonderful place to live and deserves nothing less than an excellent library. The levy funds will go a long way toward ensuring we can all count on that for years to come. Thank you, Westerville.
