Ditching New Edgewater Library

Well, it seemed promising during the grand opening.  But, I have grown increasingly unhappy with the newly -  built Edgewater Public Library.  One problem:  CTA bus service. On more than one occasion, I and other riders have waited for the northbound, CTA 36 Broadway bus inside the brand - new bus shelter, located directly in front of the facility, only to watch buses whiz past me and continue to stop at the temporary Broadway/Elmdale bus stop, that was installed in preparation of the library's construction.  I have alerted both the CTA, and Alderman Harry Osterman's office about this issue, but the bus stop sign is still in front of the former Broadway Bank building.  In other words, the buses are not stopping in front of the library as they are supposed to.

Also, it may be a new building, but the same shitty service and clueless workforce remain.  So, I've gone back to my previous routine of utilizing the Sulzer Regional Library.  Their staff are more on the ball!
