Jill Moorthy, Sartell
Sartell, Minnesota – what a great place to live! So much natural beauty – tree-filled neighborhoods, the Mississippi River, an abundance of parks, all those rain gardens. The biking/walking paths add to the accessibility of the natural spaces. Sartell has that small-town feel without the big-city stressors. Interesting eating spots popping up. Abundant shopping conveniently nearby. Excellent schools full of great kids with involved families. An idyllic setting for sure . . . and no public library? It just doesn’t make sense. This community needs and wants a library. Surveys and studies have shown that, and heck, we almost have one paid for. We can’t waste any more time as the window of opportunity is soon closing. Let’s all pull together, Sartell residents and leaders, and do the right thing: give this community the public library it deserves.
