The votes are in across Franklin, Warren and Gasconade Counties and all three library levies passed yesterday! Congratulations to everyone who uses the Scenic Regional Library system. We’ve secured new resources for better collections, services, programs, hours, and access. We’ll see many of our branches upgraded or refurbished. Our librarians will have the tools they need to help all ages get the resources they need and the materials they want. It is a good day for our community and the start of something big.
Congratulations, too, to all our volunteers who worked to share the important story of what a new $0.10 cent levy could do for education, entertainment and community enrichment in our region. These conversations with our neighbors were not possible without the excellent resources prepared by director Steven Campbell, his team of librarians, and the library’s trustees and friends working to share information about the library. There is a plan for our community and its libraries. We are so glad that the voters agreed yesterday with the plan. Thanks to everyone who worked on this Vote YES committee, everyone who clicked Like and Share on Facebook, folks who wrote letters to the editor, and people who took the step of asking their friends, family and neighbors to Vote YES for the library.
We know the library staff and leadership are getting to work right away. Join us in committing to support the library as a Friend of the Library and a Fan of the Library. We’ve got a great resource with the Scenic Regional Library that is about to get even better. Thanks for making it happen.
