Save the Library Meeting

Daniel Robles

Riverside, CA

Feb 18, 2016 — Hello,

Please join us this Saturday, February 20, at 6pm for a Downtown Library supporters meeting!
The venue is 3431 Mt. Vernon Avenue Riverside, CA
Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.

The City Council will be deciding whether to move our Downtown library at Tuesdays council meeting. (February 23 @6:30pm)

The purpose of this meeting is to inform the community of the historic significance of the libraries current site. We will be going over the history of the library, updates that have occurred in most recent years, and the process involved with making a public comment during next Tuesday’s city council meeting.
Our ultimate goal for this evening is to educate and mobilize as many residents as possible in preparation for the City Council’s February 23rd meeting.
Even if you do not plan on speaking at the city council meeting, we would like to encourage you to show your support by attending this meeting.

Thank You.
Sincerely,
The Robles Brothers and George Goodwin.

DOWNTOWN RIVERSIDE CARNEGIE LIBRARY BEING DEMOLISHED, REVEALING THE NEW DOWNTOWN LIBRARY IN THE BACKGROUND, 1964.

THE CARNEGIE LIBRARY, DOWNTOWN RIVERSIDE 1903-1963

Let’s not see this historical landmark turn into another potential money making venture for the city as indicated in this Press Enterprise article.  The article indicates that the City would like our library to be turned into a Children’s Museum, but not so fast, the underlying aspect is that this would be a possible charge to enter endeavor.  On Thursday, Feb. 11, the city announced it’s ready to negotiate with the Discovery Science Foundation to open a museum in the library building. “There’s 2 million kids in the Inland Empire,” foundation CEO Joe Adams said. “We look at it and say, ‘Wow, the need is out there.’ ” Well I say how does one get even a couple hundred kids and their families whereby we have no more than 28 parking spots at the library?  I’m sure I could be wrong, there could be another 20 parking spots lying around, but still not enough to handle what is necessary to keep this business endeavor in the black.  We saw this with the Star Trek debacle, whereby there was an expectation of close to 35,000 people to attend, that never happened.

    We need people to show up at the City Council Meeting on the 23rd! It is not enough to sign the petition. We need bodies to fill the council chambers. Come to City Hall on February 23rd and let the Council know that you want to keep the library where it is. You don’t necessarily have to speak, but having you there in support will help. I have seen the council change its mind when faced with a room packed full of opposition. Please come and support your library.
