Why are property taxes important?

Property taxes is the library’s only stable revenue resource. Other revenues include fines, grants, and interest income – all of which are not consistent. Property taxes pay for books, computers, software, electronic media (e.g. CD’s, Rosetta Stone, etc), personnel, utilities, building maintenance, and all other costs of operating and owning the library.
