Move the library

-A A +A

Freedom library needs more space? Money is tight? The Corridor area needs more library?

Well Ocala is over run with empty buildings that have plenty of space and ready made parking lots.

How about the empty Porter’s or other buildings in the Friendship shopping center on SR 200.

Or the two newly emptied Publix stores. The one in Steeplechase Plaza on SR 200 or the one on U.S. 27.

I am sure the people on that side of town would also love a library close to home.

Or how about the Porter’s up off of SR 200 near Target. The people up that way could use a library also.

These stores had water and electric already in them..

Updating these places to meet the needs of a library would seem like a better deal for the town in more ways then one.

I for one am tired of seeing "The Tree City" lose more trees and I am tired of looking at all those empty buildings and more empty building being built.
