It's not on my tax bill and I live inside the city. Jervis Library is part of mid-york library system and is not funded by local taxes.

Find something else to bitch about. There is plenty of wasteful spending going on that you should concern yourself with instead of the library.

I paid $108 to support our local library? That's not nearly enough and should probably be raised. I paid more to every charity I donated to in the last year and in my opinion the library deserves an increase in tax funding.

Don't worry when the county doesn't give Rome anything for the library next year I'm sure what we pay now will double.

Libraries are a fundamental part of a society, any society. Close down the libraries and we have lost a crucial part of who we are. Libraries are an extension of schools/colleges for the general public meant to last for everyone’s lifetime. Every society through time has housed their accumulated knowledge in libraries; brick and mortar sometimes outflanks the digital world; the digital world should never be used to dismiss libraries. After all, every true fact on the internet originated in a library of some sort.

You are wasting your time trying to convice this idiot that libraries are worth the money we pay for their operation. More than this person is some drunk who's only purpose in life is to gripe. More than likely they got to blame someone for their inability to use their heads for something other than sitting in front of a TV watching cartoons.

LIBRARY FUNDING PROPOSITION ON MAY 17 BALLOT -- Due to significant budget cuts, on Tuesday, May 17,
voters in the Rome City School District will be asked to vote on a proposition for increased funding to the library. The
impact of the requested increase would be approximately $30 per year, or $2.50 per month for the average home
assessment of $65,000. With this funding, coupled with stable funding from the county, city, and state, the library will be
able to reopen on Sundays, restore the materials, staff training, and programming budgets, and maintain computer class
expansion and outreach activities, both greatly enhanced in 2010 thanks to partnerships and dedicated staff and
volunteers. Without increased funding, the library may be forced to slash the materials budgets and eliminate a number of
staff positions, directly impacting the library’s ability to provide programming, lectures, and classes upon which our
patrons have come to rely.
The trustees of Jervis Public Library take their fiduciary responsibility seriously and have been doing everything possible
to control expenses and increase fundraising activities.

Did you know that the 2001 library budget was approximately $1.32 million? In 2011, the library is at a pace to spend
about $1.34 million.

To all you people who think you shouldn't pay for the library if you don't use it; it's well worth the small amount you pay. Many people who use the library are poor and can't afford a computer. Kids in school use it to do reports. If these people didn't have access to the library then they couldn't do their reports. They couldn't get better grades so they can go to college. Go ahead and close the library and see how that affects people. Kids dropping out of school, more people on public assistance because they don't have access to information to get educated. Once you graduate high school I guess you shouldn't pay school taxes then. You aren't using it, right? If you never need the police then you shouldn't have to pay taxes for them, right? Same goes for the fire department. I'd bet that 50% of their books can't be found on the Internet. Maybe if you read more you wouldn't be so negative.
maybe you should send Rome library a check for255000!
You really are an idiot!!!!!!

A $20K increase over 10 years. That's incredibly good for any public service organization. The police and fire budgets have tripled the budgets they were 10 years ago.
