Share your thoughts on new library " ave you wondered about what's happening with I(yle's proposed . new library? Do you want to communicate what you'd like to see in a new library for Kyle?

The Kyle City Council has approved a location on the northwest corner of Scott and Moore streets; an aerial view of the site can be viewed at the city of Kyle web- site, Of course, library staff members have been informally gathering public input about the proposed new library for some time, as patrons stop to chat at the circulation desk. In recent weeks, library visitors also have been writing on a flip chart in the library lobby in answer to the question, "What would you like to see in the new library?" Some themes recur, such as: more computers, more collection items, more hours, separate space for children and teens, and a quiet area. Other comments recommend paint colors (purple), furniture styles (bean bag chairs), policy changes (free candy), etc. All comments, both seri- ous and playful, are being compiled in a document that will be reviewed by members of the library building com- mittee. Please make your voice heard by filling out the survey included with your utility bill and by coming to the March 8 meeting at City Hall about the proposed new library, beginning at 6:30 pm. See you there! The smell of agarita in the morning MT. CITY arn greetings to you, erever in your life s oumey this column reaches you this day. Now's the time of year you can catch the gorgeous fragrance of agarita (ahhhh- ga-rita) blossoms. One of ours is in full bloom. You're welcome to take a whiff. Or, as you journey, stop alongside a road when you see evergreen bushes peppered with yellow blossoms. Their berries provide great food for our avian friends. That's why you look for agarita along fencelines. Watch for the prickly leaves. Always watch for rattle- snakes under bushes - along roadsides and in your lawn. P. Ssssssssss. Phone number for RickThomas, the Moun- tain Cityian who will rescue and relocate snakes: 512-393- 1986. Hold the snake for him under a weighted bucket. See MT. CITY MONTAGE, pg. 4C Mrs. Sledge leaves,her legacy ON CENIER A pllthough I never had the easure of meeting her .L ]kin person, Frances Sledge made a big impression on me as a citizen of Kyle. Known for her civic pride and generos- ity, Mrs. Sledge, along with her children Edward and lane, was instrumental in helping the Old Town Kyle Advocates in our fight to keep the I(yle Commu- nity Library from being moved into a sprawling subdivision north of town. By offering to sell a portion of her historic, tuner-city property, I(yle was able to secure a home for our new library on a beautiful, tree- shaded parcel of downtown land which will serve gen- erations of citizens for years to come. My condolences go out to the Sledge family along with my gratitude for the wonderful legacy their family has be- stowed upon our city. With this in mind, please plan on attending the I(yle Library Building Commit- tee public forum on Monday. March 8 at 6:30 p.m. in the Kyle City Hall to offer your input on the planning and design of our new library building. Lastly, remind your high school juniors and seniors that the deadline for the 2010 BS/ EACD Groundwater Essay Con- test is Friday. There's a $1,500 scholarship riding on it.
