Renton WA residents rally to Save Iconic Library built over a River on Super Saturday
Renton, Washington residents are mobilizing to Save their iconic Downtown Library that is built over a River with a Super Saturday Petition Drive on Saturday, March 10 at 9am. And they have to collect 1400 valid signatures as a Monday deadline nears.
Citizens for the preservation of Renton's Cedar River Library is collecting additional signatures for a petition which asks the city to keep the library in its current location or have a public vote on a change of location. The Super Saturday Petition Drive is calling for volunteers to gather at the Renton Library at 9am to go door-to-door throughout the city to collect signatures
The group thought they had collected the necessary 6375 signatures necessary for the petition drive, but 1400 signatures were ruled invalid.
"With a looming Monday deadline for signature collection this is going to have quite a dramatic finish. Unlike other philanthropy campaigns, this will ask for signatures rather than cash and a turn-out of volunteers will make or break the effort to save this one-of-a -kind library, says Richard Bray, a Strategic Philanthropy Advisor who resides in Renton.
