Joint-use library idea gets thumbs up from residents

SUISUN CITY - The idea of putting a library next to Suisun Elementary School got largely positive reviews from residents at a Tuesday night informational meeting.

The only concern came from a Mosswood Drive resident who said she didn't feel safe walking the proposed site because of crime concerns about the Pintail Drive/Sunset Drive area.

Other residents put forward ideas for what they wanted to see if the library is built that included computers, a conference room and study rooms.

Worries about the safety of school children using a library also open to the public were addressed by library officials who said the school will have access to the library in the mornings before it opens to the public and that security will be prime factor in its design.

The Thursday night meeting is the first of two meetings where Suisun City, Fairfield-Suisun School District and Solano Library officials will talk about the proposed joint-use library and get reactions from residents. >>MORE>>
