A first-class education and entertainment resource with a real sense of community. That's what the Huron Public Library is to our city and those who utilize it. On March 4, our library will have a five-year replacement operating levy on the ballot for voters in the Huron City School District. I encourage our residents to renew this levy.
Costing households only $24.50 annually -- or approximately the price of purchasing a DVD or hardcover book -- this investment is extremely important revenue for Huron's library, enabling it to continue offering benefits such as borrowing everything from books and computer software to CDs and magazines; plus extending free, first-rate programs and classes for people of all ages. It's hard to imagine our library without these things.
When using the Huron Public Library, I'm always impressed to see people doing a myriad of activities ... casually reading a newspaper, surfing the Internet, checking out a stack of books or enjoying story time with their children, which as a mother of two I value very much.
We have a beautiful community facility with an amazing collection of resources. I hope you'll join me in voting "yes" for our library on March 4.
