The library is many different things to many different people--study hall, office training center, movie house, meeting place, even a home away from home. Most likely, it means something to you, your children, and your community.
On the Nov. 5 ballot, you will find the Belmont County District Library Levy, a 1-mill operating levy lasting 5 years that needs your support.
This levy will restore the hours and services of your local library and allow for the purchase of new books and other materials, all for the price of a children's book or two annually (depending on your home value). We all know that a good book or a story hour for a child can be just as good, if not better, than an after school special on T.V. For that reason at the very least, join me in passing this levy.
