I’m missing something; How is it that our township council would consider spending mega dollars on a new Library makeover in Fergus and is contemplating shutting down the Aboyne library? Aboyne has a relatively new facility, has lots of parking, has wonderful children’s programs that are always full with waiting lists and a staff that are so willing to help. I agree that the Fergus library is small compared to Aboyne Library but does the extravagant costs in a renovation justify the need? If we have that much extra money in the coffers let’s share it with our roads department on some much needed road repair, like Garafraxa in Fergus or Colborne St. in Elora. Please explain it to me, I just don’t get it. Willow Hobson Elora
