The number one requested item from the library district residents’ is more online services such as Hoopla, Chilton, music, movies, books. The library must pay for every online service that it offers in order for patrons to be able to use them. River East Library District residents cannot use another library’s online services. River East Public Library would love to fulfill the wishes of the community, but since the tax rate for the library has seen zero growth since 1962, doing so would be impossible. The library cannot afford to pay for additional online services such as streaming music and movies and downloadable digital magazines. It is clear that if the funding to the library does not change it will soon not be able to meet the needs of the community. Fortunately, the upcoming levy to increase the library’s tax rate would ensure that the library would be able to provide these services and much more. It is amazing that for such a small price our library will be able to grow to meet the needs of district residents and support literacy and education for years to come.
Vote YES on April 7th to support the growing needs of the community and our wonderful library.
