Why the Arcade is not appropriate for our Main Library

A letter to Paul Noah and Gunther Berg:

"In light of your recent public statements and correspondence urging the Dayton Metro Library to consider moving the Main Library to the Arcade, we wanted to share in writing our reasons for choosing instead to stay where we are and renovate and expand our current building. It's exceedingly important to the Dayton Metro Library trustees and administration alike that you have an accurate understanding of why the Arcade is not now, and cannot become an appropriate or affordable site for us..."
