Annual Report

Annual Report to the Community

In May 2021, the voters approved our proposed 2021-2022 budget. We held a public information session April 26, 2021 (online and in person) and advertised in the Daily Messenger, our email newsletter (subscribe here), and our social media. The vote was held the first Monday in May in the library, as it has been every year except 2020 (when ballots were mailed to all households with the school district ballots due to COVID). The approval rate of 62% was similar to the approval rate of 66% in 2020. Budget information is included in each year’s annual report.

2020 meant flexibility and brought new remote and online services

When the COVID-19 pandemic closed the library in early 2020, we implemented a wide range of virtual programs and services. We worked through the school’s renovation project that included new carpeting. We installed new public computer workstations and an ADA compliant circulation desk for the community library. Additional 2020-2021 budget information.

With a 0% increase in the tax levy over the prior year, we provided materials and services valued at more than $460,000 from our joint-use facility with the school. See how we calculated that value.
