STANFORD - Two days after Harvey Helm Memorial Library board members voted to reject their last possible location for a new building, the community is still trying to decide what comes next.
Board president Betty Simpson said the library board will next meet Nov. 1, but has no idea what they would do. They have dismissed each of the four pieces of property they had been considering for a new location.
"We searched and searched before we found this land. So I don't know where to go at this point," Simpson said.
With Tuesday's unilateral 3-2 vote, board members rejected the only piece of free land offered to them for a larger building. The downtown property, bordered by Depot, Lancaster and Church streets, would have come free of charge and included a $55,000 donation by local physician Dr. Naren James.
