Tax Cap For Libraries
Dear Community Member:

The 2012 Library Proposition is an opportunity for Wellsville School District residents to vote upon and preserve one of the nationís best returns on library services.

Your library cares about our community. This is why the library is so committed to maintaining its current level of service while planning for future community needs. The libraryís endowment provides a high level of service at a very low cost. If we compare our library with similar-sized libraries in Upstate New York, it is clear that our community pays about 320% less for library services.

At the price of about 92 cents per week, community residents can guarantee they never have to pay such a high cost. The library tax in the Wellsville School District represents 1% of the entire tax bill for a property owner. However, any family that uses the library fully knows the libraryís impact is much more than one percent.

The Library Board encourages residents to take the time to review all information regarding this yearís proposition. It is important to us that we answer your questions. We also want you to exercise your right to vote upon this important resolution.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Donald Comstock, Library Board President
