The regional district director for Thornhill, Ted Ramsey, says he is in support of giving more money to the Terrace Public Library.

I want to give the library my full support, however I am still on the board and everyone else has input,” Ramsey said, explaining it is a bit to early to say what till happen.of the topic which he said has not been discussed by the board yet.

Anything is possible, but until you actually get to that board and speak to them, you have no idea.” Ramsey said.

I would like to support the library and I am certain that other folks will too.”

Currently the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine provides the Terrace Public Library with 27 per cent of its annual operating money, working out to $186,374 in 2011.

The board chair for the library said last week that if more money is not provided this year to the operating grant to cover negotiated pay increases to library staff, that the library will shut its doors for up to two weeks to recoup the money.
