Did you know that libraries are now being used more than ever? It’s true! In 2014 River East Public Library had 29,800 visits, additionally, the virtual use of the library’s eBooks and eAudiobooks has increased in the past two years by 50% and more people than ever use the library’s online databases. It’s clear that a lot has changed at River East Public Library, but one thing that hasn’t changed is how much funding the library receives. Since 1962 there has been zero increase in the tax rate, despite the growing use and development of the library system. A vote YES on the tax levy is a vote to support the library’s growth and development, both past and present, so that it can continue to support the growing needs of our great community.
Vote YES on April 7th!
