To the Editor,

My husband and I voted for our first Tecumseh District Library millage at an inn in California’s Napa Valley. Knowing we would be away for the election, we had our absentee ballots sent to the inn, and when we checked in, the innkeeper gave us our mail and apologized for accidentally opening the envelope. I asked him, jokingly, did you vote yes, and then explained how important this issue was to us. He was impressed that we would go to so much trouble.

Nearly ten years later, the Tecumseh District Library is an even more important part of our lives. Under the leadership of Director Gayle Hazelbaker and her staff, the library has made great strides. We have a much-improved facility, a variety of interesting programs, expanded services, and most importantly, a friendly, helpful staff.

Well-run libraries such as the one in our community are more than just a place to check out books. They enhance the well-being of everyone who chooses to avail themselves of the many services offered there. I urge all thoughtful voters to vote yes on May 7 for the Tecumseh District library millage proposal.
