The Norwalk Teachers Association gives its full support for the upcoming library levy. In this day and age, it is important that kids have plenty of opportunities to foster healthy habits. The library, and the services it provides, plays a critical role in the development of our children and young adults. The library offers the community not only books, magazines, and reference materials, but also videotapes, career information, DVDS, and computer/Internet access. Other services and programs include story time for children, summer reading programs, meeting rooms, reference databases, and adult programs. Huron County libraries provide many other services also.
A renewal of the library levy will not increase taxes for our citizens. The funds raised by the levy will be used for basic operating expenses, including library materials and services, salaries and benefits, programs, and building maintenance. I encourage all of our citizens to vote for the levy.
