As Seminole Heights residents wait for the new to be completed, they'll have to commute to libraries in nearby areas such as the John F. Germany Public Library in downtown Tampa, C. Blythe Andrews Jr. Public Library on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd or Robert W. Saunders Sr. Public Library on Nebraska.

Who is the person in charge of this? Hey, would it really be too much trouble to rent some mobile office trailers and have the library remain on site during construction? If you don't have the money to rent the office trailers then you don't have the money to build a new library. Here's a novel idea. How about the project manager from the county library take a pay cut or forfeit some of their pay in order to pay for all these office trailers, the permits to hook them up, and the expenses incurred from moving the library into these trailers? Nope you rather have everyone travel farther with gas prices the way they are. Some people won't even travel because they are kids and now they won't have a library. If I were the people in Seminole Heights, I would protest about this. This could easily be done yet they rather close the entire site for a year. Don't forget people, you ARE the taxpayers. Let them know how you feel.
