  1. 1. MOVING THE LIBRARY TO THE MAIN STREET AREA IS A WIN-WIN-WIN FOR LAUREL-AREA CITIZENS MAIN STREET MERCHANTS RESIDENTS OF THE GROVE AREA A REVITALIZED MAIN STREET A library in the Main Street area would revitalize the area by bringing visitors and shoppers. It would lead to new shops and restaurants. Increased economic activity means increased revenues for the city. A PLACE TO SHOP,VISIT AND WALK People could park and WALK to the library, shops, restaurants and entertainment. The current library location is a pedestrian and shopping dead zone. Rt. 198 is a major thoroughfare, pedestrian unfriendly, and 7th/216 is very busy. EASY TO GET TO The Main Street Area is easily accessible from 95, 216, 198, Rt 1 and Main Street. Only 3 minutes, and less than 1 mile from the current site. It is on FIVE bus lines. The current library is only on 2. Public transporta- tion means better access for Seniors, those without cars or who are unable to drive. RIVERFRONT PARK The new library will be next to Riverfront Park and a great place for library patrons to read, picnic, and walk. Riverfront Park near the Library will be an added attraction for people to visit. PARKING There would be ample site and on-street parking. WHAT ABOUT THE GROVE COMMUNITY AND EMANCIPATION PARK? This is one of Laurel’s most historic areas, and should be preserved. When the new library is built the former library would be an excellent educational and heritage resource center addition for the Emancipation Park site.
