Elliot Park helps fund Franklin Library


Elliot Park Neighborhood Inc. approved directing $5,000 toward the interim Franklin Community Library. The appropriation came after EPNI leaders listened to heartfelt comments by a resident attesting to the value of the library in one of the city's poorest communities.

Julie Steller, an Elliot Park resident and member of the Friends of Franklin Library, told the EPNI board of directors at a Sept. 8 meeting that the library draws a number of users from the neighborhood on Downtown's southeastern edge.

Immigrants, in particular, depend on it for English classes, she said.
