The St. Joseph Public Library is asking voters on August 8th to renew a 15-cent tax levy with a 20-year sunset.

Continuing the 15-cent levy for 20 years will:

  • Provide daily operating costs, including utilities and payroll at the four branches.
  • Update computers, internet and wireless access.
  • Purchase more books, audiobooks and movies. Provide more resources for entrepreneurs, small businesses and job seekers. Add individual and collaborative study rooms.
  • Increase programming and outreach for all ages.
  • Maintain and improve buildings and grounds.
  • Restore hours, open to the public, cut in 2008.
