TIME IS RUNNING OUT! PLEASE ADD YOUR VOICE: LETTER OF SUPPORT FOR LARGER COMMUNITY ROOM

The new Borrego Springs Library needs a larger community room than currently planned for. Many of you have already added your voice. Thank you and please forward to your friends and family that may not have added theirs.

Each adult member of a household can participate.

If you haven't already added your name Please do so NOW!

Borrego Springs needs a larger community room than proposed by county staff for the new Borrego Springs Library. County staff's proposed 2,000 square feet (sf) community room allows for only 1,400 sf of meeting space after the necessary 600 sf allocation to the catering kitchen and storage. At the required 15 sf per person (fire code) for banquet style seating, the 1,400 sf of meeting space will only seat approximately 93 people and we need a space that can accommodate 250.

Why Important?

Although we have wonderful resorts with full service meeting and banquet facilities, Borrego Springs does not have a "public" indoor meeting space that can accommodate the needs of the community.

Our desert environment, as lovely as it is, is not always conducive to taking celebrations of family and community outdoors.

We feel strongly that the new library's community room needs to accommodate banquet style seating for at least 250 people. 250 people x 15 sf = 3,750 sf of meeting space; 3,750 sf + 600 sf for the catering kitchen and storage = a 4,350 sf community room. Please add you voice NOW!
