Push to the Polls

I Am Voting YES for SRL ButtonOur libraries need us on April 8th.  For the first time in a generation, we have the chance to provide a reasonable and sustainable level of funding for these critically important educational and community anchors.  Our libraries across Gasconade, Franklin and Warren Counties are more than institutions. They are lifelines for people looking for information, needing access and wanting connections.  This levy is important to us because it means more – and better – collections, programs, services and facilities.

But it is also about the librarians we have in our communities who help people from falling through the cracks.  They work on teaching our youngest to read and our middle and highschoolers how to bridge the “Summer Reading” gap.  They help parents make good choices in reading and entertainment for their families.  They help our elders keep connected to the community while helping everyone to find information, learn new skills, and take time to read for enjoyment. This levy on April 8th matters to us because better funding means more time for the librarians to work in – and for – our community.

Join us in voting YES on April 8th for the Scenic Regional Library levy.  

This is our honor roll of libraries in the Scenic Regional Library System.  If you use them, great.  It is now time to support them at the ballot box on Tuesday, April 8th.  If you haven’t been in one in an awfully long time, or you are new to our area and haven’t visited, don’t worry.  You can still make sure that they are open, have the books and ebooks, databases, music and movies, programs, services, and librarians ready to help our larger community. Which one of these wonderful libraries is yours?  Please join us in voting YES for an extra $0.10 cents on the Scenic Regional Library levy on April 8th.  It will help all of Franklin, Warren, and Gasconade Counties get the libraries we want.
