I wish people should quit complaining about the new library and support it! We have an old, dark, too small library that needs to be replaced. Drive down to Salt Lake City and see what a nice library looks like.

The main library will provide open community space that is not possible in the current renovated plumbing warehouse. The branch libraries and the main library create a community-based system. The branch locations will imp orove as the main campus improves. People expected t see a decrease in the numbers of people coming to the downtown main library as the branches opened. The opposite occurred; library usage has continually increased! The main library maintains the largest collection and all historical resources and makes all of it readily available to patrons through the branch location because the system works! I am a 45-year Boise resident and love the new design! It is welcoming and beautiful.

I appreciate that cost is an important concern but let's not be "penny wise and pound foolish". This is going to be a legacy building and deserves to be done with very high quality materials.

It looks beautiful! I'm very excited for this. I love it. My suggestions would be that it would be great to see a little COLOR, and I'd also love to see The Cabin somehow integrated. Excited about this!!

Good background. Thank you. I agree the history should be saved, but aesthetically for the offered design, I think moving is still a good option. There are other places to move the structure where the surrounding landscape is similar or nearly identical. For me, that would be enough to maintain the integrity of the building.

I've lived here my whole life and nothing about the cabin as a structure has been key or synonymous with Boise. From the beginning I've seen the outrage of a potential move as foreign. As a native, I don't see the significance or heritage you see here. But since we disagree on that point, I can see why you think as you do that moving it would ruin it.

I'm not here to change your mind, I'm just putting it out there for others that there is another view of the story. Some view the location as key to the building and some may not.
