council grants credit card to library for book purchases
RICHMOND -- Richmond City Council
has given the local library a credit card in response
to WaldenBooks closing in the Cache Valley Mall.
Wierenga, council member, proposed to the council on
Wednesday for a business credit for the city library.
"With Walden Books closing
we have a very limited choice on where we can purchase
books for the library at reasonable prices," she said.
Up until now, both the city and the
library were sharing a credit card. The new card will
open the city up to larger expenditures and give the
library enough money to sell book pre-orders and order
The credit card received a unanimous
vote and will be given a $1,000 limit.
On another note, Wierenga said the
state inspector had come up earlier this year and inspected
the library. He gave the city library a perfect score.
This makes Richmond's library better than other libraries
in cities that are up to five times its size. The inspection
was based on safety and quality of the building.
