Help keep the John Tetso Memorial Library open!

Text taken directly from NationTalk

January 13, 2009

The MLA for Nahendeh, Kevin Menicoche, would like to see the library in Fort Simpson remain open. The Deh Cho Hall, which is the current home of the John Tetso Memorial library, is scheduled to permanently close its doors next month. The Deh Cho Hall is an older building formally used for government offices, which are being relocated in February. Mr. Menicoche says, “A short-term solution is to continue housing the library in the Deh Cho Hall until the spring. This approach would provide more time to find a permanent space for it.”

Mr. Menicoche adds, “I have received many emails and phone calls from concerned citizens not wanting to see their library shut down. My constituents have been trying to find a solution on their own, but I think that the government should step-up to the plate and offer to find a solution. I have contacted the appropriate Ministers, but have yet to receive any positive response.”

Mr. Menicoche will be aggressively pursuing a viable solution during the Third Session of the Legislative Assembly which reconvenes on February 4, 2009.
