Just weeks from a citywide vote on a proposal to move the Portland Public Librar
Just weeks from a citywide vote on a proposal to move the Portland Public Library's main branch into the adjacent former Portland Public Market building, a group has emerged to oppose the move. Jed Rathband, a consultant, helped found Portlanders for Educational and Economic Priorities (PEEP). He believes the city should not spend money to move the library, but should focus on the ongoing effort to revitalize Monument Square, which the library faces. With details on the library's proposal.
