The Library Board of Trustees voted to place a referendum on the April 4 consolidated election ballot for an expanded building and expanded services. The new ballot question asks voters to approve a limiting rate increase that will fund a renovation of the current building, an addition, equipment and furnishings and it will provide funds to operate the expanded facility. Visit the Library’s Future page for full details, including floor plans and architectural renderings.
What’s New at Your Library
Jason feels the library is important to the community because it provides a warm, public space for people to meet up and study, tutor or just hang out. His favorite way to use the library is the interlibrary loan system. Sometimes the only way he can get the items he wants is through the older collections of academic libraries, or in one case, from a library named after the author, which had the only copy of his book in the whole American library system! Check out the Board of Trustees Page to learn more about Jason!
