Library Climate to Change for the Better

   Last summer, on the hottest of days, I discovered the Flower Librarys A/C was down and that was the final straw as far as the historic building's dubious HVAC system relying on numerous heat pumps that had been a regular maintenance problem.
    I am glad to note as I leave, the plan is in place to replace the system with a more appropriate HVAC that will be dependable and economical.
    The patrons and the collection deserve no less.

Probably just needed a competent technician to fix the one already bought and paid for. Its hard to get good repair service from the same group that will profit hugely if you replace instead of repair.

Modern misguided ill-conceived NY energy codes, require high seer units. The way they get this mandated performance is that they take less humidity out of the air. The result is a system that is much less conformable at 72 degrees. Of course a system that is undersized for AC and over-sized for heat is common. But it is almost just as common to oversize the AC too.

LET THE library SELL A PICTURE THAT'S WORTH $$$.
They have lots of valuable stuff that should be sold to pay their bills. BEFORE - THE PLACE GET ROBBED AND ALL THE VALUABLES ARE GONE.

Let NNYCF pay for it.

Who's the new board member? There was a lot of fanfare when Doheny joined, then there was barely a note when he finally resigned, then I never saw a single word about his replacement. The library is one of our community's biggest assets so I am always interested in who is managing it.

9:20- my daughter's stuffed cow would add more value to the board than he did. Anyone is an improvement.
