The Pine River Library is on the ballot in November!
On July 28, 2019 the Pine River Library Board of Trustees announced that the Library will be requesting a small Mill Levy increase this coming November.
Why? First, the library has been losing funds because of falling property taxes, which made up 84 percent of its revenue in 2018. Second, the Pine River Library receives no state funding. Third, revenues from oil and gas are declining. Fourth, operating costs continue to rise. Learn more.
Last year’s unsuccessful bid for a Mill Levy increase means the Library is now closed on Sundays with fewer operating hours the rest of the week. A loss this year could result in reductions to staff staff, programs, services and more.
If you want the Pine River Library to maintain the programs and services our community relies on and expects, we hope you will support our request for a small Mill Levy increase in November.
If you have questions or would like to help, please let us know. We appreciate your support!
