Letter about new library a ‘downer’ | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

"After so much controversy and compromise to complete the much-awaited project, it’s hard to understand a negative snarky letter in the Reporter even before it’s open to the public."

What a greeting for our new library.

I read with dismay the letter posted in regard to the color scheme, construction material selection, potential for allergic reactions, possible depression consequences, building style, and more regarding the new Renton Library (Letters to the Editor, July 31).

After so much controversy and compromise to complete the much-awaited project, it’s hard to understand a negative snarky letter in the Reporter even before it’s open to the public.

What a downer for so many anxious Renton citizens who are ready to use it and enjoy it.

For a person to make judgments (based on their personal taste and obvious bias) and attempt to put a damper on all those who will love it is so selfish. How about letting everyone have their own opinions? This letter is just an excuse to slam the city, KCLS, and the many people who worked together to complete this great project.

What a wet blanket!

Looking forward to the grand opening on Aug. 22!

Sally Rochelle,
Renton
