Suggests Combined Library-Market

Secretary Ankeney Thinks It Would Be Economy in Connection With Necessities.

Franklin H. Ankeney, secretary, Cumberland Chamber of Commerce, has suggested as a means of establishing a market building here, that the markets be combined with the proposed public library, also projected.

Mr. Ankeney cited Baltimore as being one of the many cities in which combined markets and other institutions have been connected with success.

The Marsh Market, East Baltimore street, is in the same building with the Maryland School of Art and Design, which has an enrollment of over 2000 day and night students, the secretary specified.

Mr. Ankeney said that in his opinion a Market-Library building erected on the site of the former city water works, Green street, would be an economical policy in that both institutions are thought to be desired by the greater number of citizens. The site is centrally located and can be approached on three sides.

A committee representing the proposed market building, which place the matter before the City Council yesterday, was asked by that body to suggest means of realizing the project, which has resulted in Mr. Ankeney’s combined market and library suggestion.

The Chamber of Commerce, through the secretary, is planning to run questionnaires in the local newspapers, designed to obtain the sentiment of the public on the combined project.
