They Voted No in Shorewood-Troy
We are sorry to announce that the residents of Shorewood-Troy will not be getting a new library this year.
The vote is in and a significant portion of voters said No. We are proud to have backed the Citizens for a new Shorewood-Troy Library committee. They are smart, dedicated, and engaged people who know that a new library would be an asset to their community. This is a time for them to take stock and consider a way forward. And in the same way EveryLibrary learned from the success in Spokane we'll learn from this loss in Shorewood. We'll share that learning here. Every.Library.Matters.
The results tonight are not what we hoped for, but we have been so pleased by everyone's support and encouragement over the past 5-6 months. You've been awesome supporters! Give us time to regroup and we'll be back for a better library in Shorewood!-- From the Committee's FB Page
