Our recent book sale was an- other great success. Once again we said, "We have more books than ever" -- and we did! We know it takes many vol- unteers to make a successful sale. We thank all the people who donated materials. The se- lection was amazing! We thank all the helpers who set up. We had some great work- ers. It wouldn't be a sale without customers. You just kept com- ing! We also need to send thanks to the city volunteers who helped set up tables and to the city for the generous use of the City Hall meeting space. We ap- preciate your help. Our summer reading pro- gram is winding down. We've had great participation from the community. It is so much fun to watch the children pick up their rewards. They are so proud and excited. I love to see the smiling fa es at storytime. 'Our little library is a fun and vital part of Cold Spring and we are proud to be here. We know the services provided by the li- brary strengthens the people who live here and their quality of life. With sincere thanks, Max Backes for Cold Spring Friends of the Library Letter to the Editor, Opening 14th Avenue South to Highway 23. Do you like to walk, run, bike, or rollerblade? Do you pull a wagon, push a stroller, ride a scooter or walk your dog? I live on the corner of 4th Street South and 13th Avenue South. This spring and summer I was "stuck" at home recovering from surgery. It has been entertaining for me to watch all the activity on these streets, and I became aware of the many, many people who use the trails around the drainage pond on 14th and the nearby woods. Since there are no sidewalks, people access this trail from 3rd St. or 14th Ave. They also use 14th Avenue to ac- cess the trail between Cold Spring and Richmond. If 14th Street is opened up to Highway 23, there will be much more traffic on both of these streets. It is my opinion that it will be difficult and unsafe for people on both streets and those crossing 14th to get to the pond trails. I would certainly not like to see all this activity curtailed because of the risks, and it would be tragic if someone was injured because of the added traffic. We have no children or grand- children in the area, and yes, it would be more convenient for me driving if the street were opened up. But, is myp inion that this Across 1.
