The readers of the summer reading program at the Western Albemarle-Crozet Library read a record number of books this year- 12,298 an increase of 3000 books read by over 600 readers, up from 400 readers in 2010.
Wendy Saz and her wonderful staff of library leaders have welcomed all residents to their tiny library, all 1700 sq feet of it.
The plans for the new library should be complete during late August and ready for public inspection and board discussion of cost in September. The library design executive committee will be meeting soon as well. Then comes the challenge of persuading the Board of Supervisors that building the library will be the best investment of 2011 for the County.
