It is of my utmost beliefs that the removal of the Williamsburg Library will not benefit the town or county in any way. As an avid reader I understand what books do for a person. They educate. I may be missing something but there is not anything one can do better for his/herself than to learn. Growing up in the area I know first-handed that there is not much to do, especially not in Williamsburg. So what are we trying to do? Well, beneficially we should be trying to
improve Williamsburg’s standard of living therefore attracting new citizens who would like to reside. If we continue taking such resources away, like the library, what will we have left to attract newcomers? Think about it.
Now think about the citizens already currently residing in Williamsburg. They don’t have much around. What they do have is one of the world’s best forms of entertainment: books. They don’t get old. Kids love books. I know for a fact that there are still children living in Williamsburg because two of my nieces are. They use the library. The thought of its removal pains them, which pains me. I believe if anyone in the power of keeping the library has a heart/brain,
it would pain them as well.
