Website set up to give information on library millage request
To the Editor,
Thank you for the well-balanced and informative article you wrote announcing the May 7 Tecumseh District Library millage vote. (TDL to seek 1.35 mills in May election, 1.15 renewal and .20 additional mills). I’m writing to let your readers know important resources are available to help them understand the millage requests.
The Tecumseh District Library Ballot Question Committee (TDL-BQC) has set up a website at www.vote4tdl.com, which is loaded with useful information. This includes library use statistics, steps TDL has taken in the past 10 years to better meet patron’s needs, and how funds entrusted to the library have been used.
The website explains why it’s important to vote Yes on both millage requests to maintain TDL’s current level of resources and services. The website includes a page to help readers calculate their current library tax and what the additional .20 millage will cost, based on their present home value. A sample ballot and FAQ (Fre-quently Asked Questions) are also available.
If readers have any questions, would like to help with the campaign or arrange for a speaker to come to their organization or group, they can contact us at 423.6289. We love to talk about the wonderful things this library has done in the past 10 years to help make our community a great place to live. Readers can also write us at TDL-BQC, P.O. Box 205, Tecumseh, MI 49286.
