Levy keeps library available to all

To the Editor:

I am writing on behalf of Positively Promoting Piqua and The Citizens for a Better Piqua, endorsing and in full support of the Piqua Library Renewal Levy. It is important for us to note that this is not a new tax, as it is a renewal levy. A YES vote will assure that we maintain the library at its current local funding at the same level as the original levy that was passed in 2012.

The money that is received from this levy will stay here in our community and will help to cover the general operating expenses for things like: book purchases, movies and audiovisual materials, staffing hours, utilities, insurance, supplies, children and adult programming, computer system maintenance, outreach services, and so much more! It is true that you can do much more than check out a book at our Piqua Library, and the wonderful thing is that the services of our library are free and available to ALL the citizens here in Piqua. Please vote YES, to keep this a reality in the years to come!
