Library Millage Renewal Information

Millage Nov 3, 2020 blog graphic

Our vital services include resources for parents, students, teachers and home schoolers, storytimes for your little ones, computers for online job searching, movies, music and ebooks for downloading, and traditional books to check out. With four buildings throughout the county, a bookmobile, a book bike, and a robust website that offers materials 24/7, your award-winning library system is here where--and when--you need us!

The millage provides 86% of our operating revenue, with the rest coming from state aid, penal fines, and other sources, which are expected to decrease substantially over the next several years. 

Approval means hours, programs, services, and buildings will be maintained at current levels. The renewal is for six years at 1.75 mills, down from 2.0 mills, so you will be paying a lower rate. The cost on an $80,000 home will be only $70 per year.
