Millage Renewed!

(Libraries, News, State and Regional) Permanent link

Thank you, Kalamazoo, for your strong vote of confidence and your investment in Kalamazoo Public Library for the next twenty years.

KPL's staff and board of trustees gratefully accept your vote to renew our basic operational millage. Your overwhelming support (76% of the vote!) encourages us to follow the same course--to work for excellence in the library's staff development, buildings and technology, materials collection, programs, and services.

We truly appreciate your trust. We will continue to be careful stewards of your library and to spend your tax money wisely.

Thank you again for your vote. Come visit soon!

Vote of confidence indeed! Despite seriously challenging times, strong support for core components like the library, transportation system and education provides an essential foundation for growth, and speaks volumes about our community. Kalamazoo is good place to be.

What a great community Kalamazoo is!

For the voters to recognize the value of a their public library by such a large margin during these tough economic times in our country, and especially in Michigan, truly is inspiring.

I know that you and library officials understand and take very seriously the responsibility conferred by the voters to continue to provide an excellent program for the public!

I am so proud of Kalamazoo. To wake up and hear more about Michigan's horrible economic situation, then learn that both the library and transit millages passed overwhelmingly -- what a wonderful city we live in! Kalamazoo citizens are committed to literacy, education and the well-being of the entire community. We really are living The Promise!

I am proud to say I live in a municipality that has the second largest library tax in the state--the tax on ignorance is much higher! Congratulations on a successful campaign. I'm glad you will be around to continue the work you've been doing.
