And Appropriate Funds In The General Fund.
Chris Avery, President of the Friends of the Museum, was on
hand to answer any questions Village Council or citizens might
have regarding the proposed Library Alley Project. The project
would involve removing the asphalt paving and sidewalk area
between the library and the museum and replacing it with brick, few benches and a some plantings to create a plaza effect. The
purpose for the plaza was to create an attractive quite, peaceful
area for people to sit, and a safer place for children and adults
visiting either the library or the museum by discouraging through traffic of that area.
Mr. Avery explained to Council that the Museum didn' t have
the funds to help with the project at this time, but he and Paul
Goudy, Curator for the Robbins- Hunter Museum, have been active in
the planning process of the Library Alley project. He further stated a combined list of both the Friends of the Museum and
Friends of the Library will be used in the Library Alley Committee' s fund raising campaign in an effort to raise the additional funds needed to reach the $60,000 estimated cost for the project.
Councilmember Rader asked what funds had been committed and by whom. Mr. Avery responded and said $15, 000 has been committed by the Library Board, $1, 000 from the Granville Foundation,
d2on, 0a0t0edf.rom the Friends of the Museum, and $6, 000 anonymously

Ted Englehardt stated that he talked with the Township
Trustees about contributing to the project. He said the idea was
favorably received, but the Township was advised by their legal counsel (County Prosecutor), that they didn' t have a legal right
to support a village project.
Councilmember Rader asked Mr. Avery if he knew how township residents many use the Granville Library. Mr. Avery didn' t know, but thought the head librarian would probably have that information.
