Library move a bad idea

Longhouse was not built to house a college library

Dear Sir:

The heading “Library looks to move into longhouse” from the March 2, 2016 issue of The Terrace Standard regarding a new use for the building at Northwest Community College is slightly misleading.

Your article seems to indicate that is is the college’s proposal and not the libary’s.

I do not think that this move is a good idea.

The longhouse is too small for the library’s collection.

The longhouse is also on the far edge of the campus, a considerable distance away from where the classes are held. Isolated such as it is, it could become a security issue.

The longhouse simply wasn’t built for the purpose of housing the college’s library.
