Did you know?
The Crawford County Library System has not had an income increase since 1998 when voters increased property taxes from .4 mills to 1.4 mills. During the 20 years since that increase, several items have taken a toll on the library system budget such as:

- inflation (price of 1 gallon of gas in 1998 was $1.06 -- in 2019 it is $2.59 per gallon)

- minimum wage increase (minimum wage in 1998 was $5.15/hr --in 2019 it is $9.25/hr)

- costs of digital subscriptions

- costs of maintaining computers/equipment/programs

Even though the county has grown, it has not been enough to even out these increased costs to the system. Do you know how much you pay in property tax to the library system? It is on your tax receipt. On property valued at $100,000 you pay $28 per year at the current rate of 1.4 mills.
Which would you support? *
