Shaffers: Library still needs work

We have an "impressive" library in Maybell?
I'm sure the board of directors were impressed. But, they didn't look close enough. We in Maybell are pleased and lucky to still have a library in Maybell.
The major problem with this is the fact that it isn't user-friendly. The engineer of this project lacked a lot in the thought department.
The books are jammed into one trailer with narrow, dead-end aisles, and jammed into the shelves very tight.
Then, at least half the books are end-wise rather than with the bindings and names showing.
Also, the bottom shelves are very difficult to access so close to the floor.
Did I also mention with the aisles so narrow and the lighting poor it makes it difficult?
I think the board of directors should take a closer look. We are older patrons and maybe a bit cranky, but there is more room.
Why not spread it out a bit?
