You have my 100% money-back guarantee you will enjoy reading Dan DeAngelo’s blog post about the historic Telling Mansion Library in South Euclid-Lyndhurst, Ohio.
The Cuyahoga County Public Library Board has unilaterally decided to abandon the Telling Mansion, the library for 60 years, and replace it with a new, more expensive facility further from the center of the communities it serves.
Do you think an historic building can be a 21st century library? The people who live in this community think so, but read this interesting case study and decide for yourself.
If you think this Ohio Landmark and a building on National Register of Historic places belongs to the public, is part of our public wealth, and should not be sold* into private hands, please sign our petition.
Our taxes bought this building and have maintained it for 60 years.
Doesn’t this building BELONG TO US and our FUTURE GENERATIONS?
Please contact our Ohio representatives and senators and let them know how you feel about this loss of our public property:

*The Cuyahoga County Public Library spent over $1,000,000 to renovate Telling Mansion in 2002, and won an award from the Cleveland Restoration Society for doing so. The Library Board has placed it on the market at the bargain basement price of $895,000. Is this a sound and responsible fiscal decision?
Heights residents are entitled to an opinion about this Library, as 25% of the Cuyahoga County Public Library’s tax support is from the state of Ohio–if you pay taxes you are entitled to an opinion!
