LETTER: Library closure raises concern

I was dismayed at the recent sudden closure of Oak Bay Library and appalled that they didn’t notify patrons by email. I had an item to pick up and went to retrieve it twice only to find a closure notice on the door.

More concerning is the reason for its closure: asbestos. Apparently, this will require removal leading to weeks of no service at the branch. So what happens to its employees during that period?

Lots of questions that need to be answered.
