Eventual library move will benefit all
By Jeannette Brasher
Most of my regular patrons know that the library will be moving in the near future.
But they don’t know, and neither do I, just when that move will be.
We will be located in the new Jemison Municipal building with more space and much better parking conditions.
It has been very nice here, but personally, I miss being part of the City Hall.
In the new building, there will be elbow space for the water board, court clerk, city clerk, mayor, city council, library and police department.
Having everyone under the same umbrella is a smart move for the city. Everyone will benefit. Taking care of business with one stop will be much easier for the citizens of Jemison.
We are no longer a small town. Our traffic flow can get congested at times.
The city will have the new sidewalks completed soon. That will be so nice for foot traffic, not to mention those who have motorized wheelchairs.
I expect there will be signs of Hop-Scotch here and there.
