I am writing to support the idea that Carnegie Samuel Calian put forth in his recent letter about reusing the August Wilson Center for African American Culture as a public center for lifelong learning (“Create a Wilson Center for Lifelong Learning,” Feb. 21).
I would take it one step further and suggest that the center become the new Downtown branch of the Carnegie Library, which would celebrate all forms of learning for the rapidly increasing number of residents and workers Downtown.
The current facility is so undersized, almost an afterthought compared with the other branches that have seen recent needed renovations and expansions. Downtown deserves better! It would be a true tribute to August Wilson, who spent many an hour at the Carnegie Library.
