Letter to the Editor: Competing For Parking

To the Editor:

The Burke Library on Seminary Road is a great facility with courteous staff and lots of material. Too bad no one will be able to use it. Since the Alexandria school system moved an office into the building, parking has become exceedingly tight. In the past week I tried unsuccessfully to find a parking spot for two consecutive days. I was forced to park alongside a fence (illegally).

I urge our city manager to direct the schools to park a portion of their vehicles somewhere else so that library patrons can access a library. I urge all users of this branch to contact elected officials and apprise them of this issue.
