Just to let everyone know, I stilll have not been notified officially, but "they" decided not to move the library to the smaller space. The consultant, Debbie Hunt, did a wonderful job in proving that the amount of space we have is justified. Thanks to all of you who gave suggestions, and support, to my panicked query; I really appreciate all your help. Although it was a great learning experience, especially finding out how much my patrons appreciate the space and the services I and my assistant provide, I do not really care to go through that again. 

If anyone is facing something similar and would like to talk to me, please do not hesitate to email or call.

In gratitude and relief,
