Your Library is on the Ballot!

April 04, 2023

To address increasing minimum wages, the library is proposing a tax increase.

The question provides voters an opportunity to approve ("yes") or disapprove ("no") of a

0.04% tax increase.​​

Instead, Sherrard Library relies on YOUR property taxes!​​

That's less than 1/2 %!


Your Property Taxes Finance Over 99% of the Costs Associated With:

- Staffing

- Programs

- Books, Movies, Magazines, Newspapers

- Interlibrary Loan Fees

- eBook Fees

- Hours of Operation

- And So Much More!
