Library shines in our community

Clif “Bo” Cavanaugh’s comment on our sweet, well-run Auburn Library (letter to the editor, July 7) is unfair and misguided advice to our residents.

I visit there once or twice a week for various research work, pickups and returns and computer classes. The highly skilled librarian staff is well equipped with techniques to de-escalate heated situations of any kind. I have seen it with my own eyes.

The homeless use the library with so much courtesy as any other person, and the police presence for safety is well covered.

With the beautiful park improvements, loads of people of all walks of life use the library, the playgrounds, gymnasium, senior center and museum.

So Auburn residents go to the library and all other facilities around it. Donate to it and joyfully use it up.

Mr. Cavanaugh, I think you owe the Auburn Library an apology.
