Our View: Commons rehab project has potential
It’s time to come to terms with the fact that a new city library likely won’t be built at the Glover Park site where the Friday Memorial Library now sits. The debate is over, and $500,000 of grant money is on the table. It appears to be a done deal that the city’s new library...
