SR BookmobileDid you see the article in the Republican talking about the library?  It hit the high points:  that it has been a very long time since we’ve put any new money into our libraries, that the money will go to good uses, and that the library touches lives all across Warren, Franklin and Gasconade counties.  Voting YES on April 8th across the Scenic Regional Library system means –

Additional funding would provide updated technology, and allow the library to offer more downloadable digital magazines, movies and music, a text and chat reference service, tablets for check outs and pre-loaded e-readers. Local libraries have also begun offering free programs at all its branches for teens and adults on subjects ranging for gardening and watercolor painting to crocheting and cooking. Campbell estimated 40,549 library users have participated.

We’re you surprised by the fact we are the 3rd lowest taxed library system in the state? We’ve gotten a lot of value from our library.  It’s time we reinvest in them for the 21st century.
