    The Cannelton Library’s recent decision to pursue a merger with the Tell City-Perry County Library is good news for patrons of both in the short term, but there could be problems in the future.

    Both library buildings would remain open, and patrons of each would have access to all the volumes of both. Though the Tell City library is larger, each has some books that the other does not. So that means patrons of both libraries would have more choices of reading material.
