GOING FORWARD LET’S REPLACE LOVE FULLERTON DAY WITH FULLERTONIANS WHO LOVE LEARNING AND READING DAY, STARTING WITH A FIRM COMMITTMENT TO REOPEN OUR HUNT BRANCH LIBRARY. By Barry Levinson
I have reviewed what activities were accomplished at prior Love Fullerton Days and most of the efforts were to help the city government do its job, such as cleanups in our parks, washing Police vehicles, etc. I commend those who join with city employees to make our city a little cleaner and little more beautiful, etc.
However, instead of doing things that at best have a very short useful life, I suggest we do something that could change the lives of many Fullerton residents forever. What better thing to do than to help educate and motivate our children and adults? That is what we could accomplish by reopening our Hunts Branch Library. Instead of washing a police vehicle, we get a hundred or more volunteers to paint, clean up, repair as well as create a reserve to help meet some of the costs to have a grand reopening of our Hunts Branch Library. It is always nice to do something that makes us feel good. How about we help to make reopening the Hunts Branch Library a reality, which will do much good for so many members of our Fullerton community.
I love the Hunt Branch Library. But more importantly, I love the positive impact that library would have on the members of my community being inspired, educated and motivated by the books and the future programs in our newly reopened Hunt Branch Library.
All of Us Remember the Slogan, “A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste”. So let us all agree that the Hunt Branch Library is a community resource that should never be wasted or discarded.
I ask that the Fullerton City Council join with me to make reopening the Hunt Branch Library a reality for our community.
The City of Fullerton’s official website (see below) states that the Hunt Branch Library is “temporarily closed”. It has been approximately 3 years since this temporary closure has taken place with no date certain of when it will be reopened or if it will ever be reopened. Please let the Fullerton City Council and Fullerton City Manager that you demand that the city reopen one of the communities treasures, The Hunt Branch Library.
