In the spring edition of "Reading Between the Lines," a publicatoin for patrons of the library, Shorewood-Troy Public Library director Jennie Cisna Mills answers the question, "Why a new library building?"
Residents will be asked to vote on a proposed tax increase to build the library on April 9. The cost of the new library is estimated at $21 million.
"We estimate that for the average home in Shorewood the cost would be about $20 a month—less than a hardback book, half the cost of a video game, much less than the cost of having the internet in your home," Cisna Mills said in her "From the Director" letter.
She said she will be happy to answer questions. Call her at 815-725-1715.
