Campbell Votes To Buy Church For Library

A former Baptist church on French Island will be turned into a new library for the Town of Campbell.

Town residents voted 134 to 55 in favor of the purchase on Tuesday night, after a public hearing.  The library would be moved out of the town hall to provide more space for emergency services.  Some opponents of the plan argued that the town government doesn't need more space if the population has not grown, while others suspected that town officials had a conflict of interest in arranging for the purchase.
