Confroy, Brown to represent Halifax on joint library panel
SoVaNow.com / November 15, 2012Halifax council members Bill Confroy and Tom Brown will represent the Town of Halifax on the recently-formed Joint Library Working Committee. They were named to the panel by Mayor Dick Moore at Tuesday night’s monthly meeting of Council.
Confroy and Brown will join South Boston councilmen Ed Owens and Bill Snead and county supervisors J. T. Davis and Lottie Nunn to plot out the future direction of the local library system. One suggestion is to look at consolidation of the two branches in South Boston and Halifax under one roof at a new location.
Moore told his appointees he is on record as opposing any consolidation of the two branches. “We have to find a way to operate both the South Boston library and the Halifax library as effectively as we can with the resources we have available,” Moore said.
Earlier in a Council work session that preceded the monthly meeting, Councilmen heard a report from Events Coordinator Susi Robbins about the success of the October Halifest 2012 which took place on Saturday, Oct. 27, drawing well over 500 people during the five hour event.
They also heard a report from assistant town manager Denise Barksdale about the continuing growth of the Farmers Market activities. Barksdale told Councilmen that the Farmers Market had a very good season with its vendor list continuing to grow.
Council was reminded that Halifax will host its annual Children’s Christmas Parade on Friday, Nov. 30 at 6:30 p.m. and its annual Open House activities on Sunday, Dec. 2 from 1-5 p.m.
