State and county tax revenues and local demographics have one thing in common: they are ever-changing. In such an environment of uncertain tax revenues and increasing populations, the Foundation’s goal to provide financial stability for our libraries is even more important. Our six libraries need:

  • To maintain, upgrade, and enhance public-access computers as technologies change and demand increases;
  • From time to time to ask assistance with renovation, new construction, and new fixtures as library use increases;
  • To train staff as we develop more efficient and cost-effective inter-library communications for programming, circulation, and for sharing resources;
  • To provide new and innovative programs to our young patrons (close to 12,000 children and young adults in Carroll and Madison counties!) to instill in them an early reading habit and the joy of life-long learning.
