To The Editor:
We want to raise our hands and shout YES to our August 4 vote to increase our funding for our excellent library! We are blessed in so many ways by the beneficial services it offers. It offers access to Wifi, plus computers are often used for job applications and filing for unemployment or for creating writing assignments. Computers were used over 26,000 times as stated in the 2019 review of our library. Over 90,000 items were checked out! More than 62,000 visits were made!
In this technological age, as we update our computers in our homes and in our businesses, our library needs to implement these upgrades to keep our community up to date.
To meet earlier budget demands, our library had to cut back on the hours the library was open. This mileage support will allow greater accessibility for community use.
Please remember to vote YES on August 4. We will be glad that we did!!
Jim and Gloria Helgemo
