The Wilson Extension Education Association has presented a check for $2,000 to the Wilson County Education Foundation. The foundation was formed in February 2011 to promote the planning and construction of a new library for Wilson County.

The Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library is an asset to all of the communities in Wilson County. It offers computer literacy classes and free Internet access, which includes academic databases for research. Books, e-books, audio books, DVDs, and CDs are among the other services provided by the library.

The county population has increased in the last 10 years and is projected to double within the next five years.

The current library, built in 1968, has outgrown its facilities. Approximately 300 people per day visit and use the library. The library also operates a kiosk in La Vernia for checking out books, audio books, and DVDs.

At the Aug. 27 meeting, the foundation unanimously agreed to support the passage of the proposed bond for Wilson County, which will be on the November ballot. The proposal provides for the stabilization and renovation of the Wilson County Courthouse and a larger building for the library at Wilson County Courthouse Annex III.

Obviously, the Wilson County Education Foundation is willing to sacrifice the good of the county and the taxpayers for the short-sighted goal of a new County library. The library costs $2M out of a $9.2M project expenditure ... More ›

Very. The truth is the foundation wants the taxpayers strapped with the millions but only found $2,000.00 themselves. Bet we could form a taxpayer foundation to contribute much more than that if the bond issue would go away. ... More ›
