Town should reduce number of library locations

To the Editor:

I said it before and I will say it again. The main library on Post Road and the Pequot library are all this town needs.

The advent of computers is reducing the need for library books. I would think that in a town as wealthy as Fairfield very few children don’t have access to a computer. People can get information and books faster on line than by traveling to a library. Those who wish to read books can drive to the other two libraries, as I am sure they are driving or being driven to the Fairfield Woods location.

After school programs should be held in schools, not libraries, and adult education programs should be held in schools, not libraries. If they must be held in libraries, well we have two libraries they can be held in.

I am an older person and even I can see that the future of libraries is becoming of less and less importance. I am not advocating all libraries close, but merely cutting back on the amount in this town. It would be great if this property became a tax-paying entity instead of a drain on taxpayer funds. I think this property would be great for either a 55-plus location or office building.
