We sent this column to press just before the recent primary [pub. note: It passed],here voters were asked to support a millage increase that would expand the Ferndale Library’s operating hours, and enhance services. Perhaps you’re reading this after a successful campaign, in which case you will find us grateful and ready to further strengthen and upgrade sever-al aspects of our service, including programming and computer access, along with more hours. We’d be sad to say that more cuts could be on the horizon should this millage have failed. Regardless, let it never be in doubt that we are unwaveringly devoted to serving the City of Ferndale, and strengthening this community by providing access to materials and services that inform, enrich, entertain and empower.
