“It’s a super boost to Grantville, they say”

This headline in The South Gippsland Sentinel-Times, Wednesday, December 30, 2020 takes me back to my Letter to the Editor in the same paper, Tuesday, June 25, 2019: “Library business, tricky business.”

As part of my letter, I raised the concept of “The Grantville Communication Hub” and now with the likelihood of a supermarket and shopping precinct, this may yet come to pass.

But in the meantime, it’s good to read our Western Port Ward councillors and the Mayor are so enthusiastic about Grantville’s “super boost”.

If they are this keen, perhaps now is the time to ask them to turn their gaze to the Grantville Transaction Centre, for it houses, what is said to be, Australia’s smallest public library.

This library was sanctioned by the previous council when it abandoned the mobile library service.

If, as Councillor Le Serve commenting on the supermarket proposal says, “I think it’ll be a great building block for Grantville to kind of take that next step and be that northern entrance into Bass Coast.”, I’d suggest a bigger library would be most fitting and in keeping with the council’s new-found enthusiasm for the Waterline community and its wellbeing.
