A 10 cent increase on our existing 10 cent levy may seem like a large jump, but Scenic Regional Library has had this same level of funding for 55 years. The experts at the Missouri State Library suggest that a library in our area needs a 20-cent levy, which costs the average taxpayer less than the cost of one hardcover book each year, to provide adequate services for its communities. As the counties the library serves have grown, Scenic Regional Library has had to operate on half of that. Instead of spending precious tax dollars on ballot measures to increase the levy by a few cents every few years, an increase of just 10 cents will ensure the Scenic Regional Library has adequate funding to grow alongside Franklin, Warren, and Gasconade counties for a much longer time.
Vote YES on April 8th so Scenic Regional Library can continue to provide exceptional services and spaces for our ever growing communities!
