News From the Peru Free Library Board

PERU FREE LIBRARY PROPOSITION FOR FUNDING INCREASE

Proposition #3 on the ballot at the time of the Peru Central School District budget vote will be a request from the Peru Free Library to increase funding from the community. Since 2005, the Library has received $5000 each year with approval from the voters at that time. These funds directly support the students and families in our Library service area. As the costs for supporting these services have increased, the Library is now requesting a funding level of $10,000 annually. This increase would then cost each taxpayer of Peru 71 cents per year for Library services. This proposition is a separate item from the school budget.

These funds will help the Library continue to provide the community with supportive staff members as well as books and other educational materials, free printing and photocopying for school assignments, computers and free wireless internet, study space, tutoring accommodations and home-schooled family instructional space. It will also continue the series of year round children’s programming, art classes, art shows, special events, story hour and crafts.

It is important for the voters of the Peru Central School District to support this proposition that will allow the Library to continue their services to the community into the future! Please vote YES to Proposition #3 on May 16th at the Peru School budget vote.

I fully support the fund increase. A great lose to the community if they had to cut back on services or even close at some point.
