While Ferndale can take great pride in its support of the library it is astounding that just a few miles away, the city of Troy is getting ready to shut down its library. Various plans and millage proposals to save the library have failed, and unless a lifeline is found quickly, the library will shut its doors in June.
That is shameful. Troy is a major, fairly affluent city. But the anti-tax movement in there appears to be adamant and will not support the library.
And with each day, the chances of saving the Troy library grow dimmer.
But that is Troy's problem — and its disgrace.
