Beth Helstien: Library levy lid lift is NOT for a new building

  • Written by Beth Helstien

Don't be misled.

The vote on August 6 is about funding the current library. It's NOT about a new building. Since the levy adjustment 12 years ago (carefully managed to last twice as long as planned) inflation has gone up more than 30%.

Without this levy adjustment, the library cannot continue to offer the same services--books, subscriptions, programs, technology, hours of operation, etc.--that it has today. Every year without a levy adjustment will mean more cuts to the library services that islanders use.

Please join me and Vote Yes!
