Online Petition to Support Timothy Boyle

At the March 4th DINA meeting, member Frank Walsh made a recommendation that DINA publish a petition with the purpose of supporting library employee, Tim Boyle.  Frank cited Tim as an amazing asset here on Daniel Island at the local Berkeley County Library branch.  Tim is near completion of his Masters in Library and Information Science, and many residents hope that the county library leadership will do what they can to ensure Tim remains on Daniel Island.
