Asche, Flint have the necessary qualifications for the library board
We are a community of well-meaning, beautiful and complicated beings here at Sandpoint.
In many places, like here, the local public library is the epitome of community. It is a repository of shared knowledge of all kinds and all are welcome. It helps to nurture, teach and entertain our children with crafts and story time. He teaches our children and helps the less tech-savvy among us use basic computer programs. It’s humans who help humans become better humans. Please consider all that our wonderful public library does and resist the urge to militarize its board for political gain.
There are 2 seats to be elected on May 18. Ms. Asche is a full administrator with 40 years of experience and a master’s degree in library science. Amy Flint, also titular, has served our community on Angels Over Sandpoint, Head Start and a NIC English teacher. Challengers are much less skilled. One of its main concerns is to “keep the focus of the library and its functions on the love of our country and of morals”. Good feelings, but not really the main functions of the library. The other states it wants to fight are canceling culture.
Well, I go to the library about as often as the grocery store and I can tell you there are plenty of books on offer for all political, religious, and entertainment interests – as they should be. Let’s be realistic. Two of these people care about a thriving library and community, the rest are detrimental to both.
