What Are Districts?

A library district is a governmental unit with an elected board of trustees having the power to establish a property tax mill levy for library services. Voters in the district create a library district through an election. A library district must contain territory with a taxable value of at least $5 million.

Reasons to consider a library district 

Quality library service in our local communities is an essential part of our economic development, quality of life, and education. 

Library service is not free or cheap; if funding support from the local governing body is insufficient to maintain quality services, becoming a library district can help ensure funding stability.
