CLPL not crowded

To the Editor:

My computer crashed. I visited the Crystal Lake Public Library to use its computer service.

As in previous visits, I was assisted by the friendly and knowledgeable staff and within minutes was seated at a computer. The building was not crowded.

When looking to park, I chose one of several spots within a 30-second walk to the stairs. I also observed the “green” area. I have never designed a parking lot, but if the CLPL is concerned about growth, get rid of the “green” to make 30 more parking places.

If no parking spaces are available, park at one of two churches within a minute walk. You won’t be towed. I don’t want a parking garage for a neighbor. You can’t put lipstick on a pig, so how can you “green” a parking garage?
