I am Penni Zurgable. I own a modest, much loved home in Adacroft Commons. I have lived there for nearly fourteen years. One of my sons graduated from Central High and is about to graduate from the University of Michigan. The other son is currently in Central Middle School. I am also a librarian at the Cascade branch of Kent District Library.
You may have seen me holding a library banner in an Ada Fourth of July parade. I once even dressed up and walked the route in a furry costume (and lived). When I heard that George Haga, supervisor of the Ada township Board, had spoken with Kent District Library about the possibility of a branch in our redesigned village, I was elated. A library would be a hub for our village, a year-round destination that would benefit our whole community, even those who choose never to enter it. It could provide meeting space, study space, quiet space, and not-so-quiet space for early literacy. A library would promote life long learning and community connection, and is also a place to pick up a video for movie night.
If you would like to help in this campaign, please contact me, like the Facebook page, sign the petition, or send a letter to the Ada township board.
