The Calhoun County Library is in search of some supportive votes for their operational levy on the May primary ballot.

The $30,000 annual levy is for three years, and will underwrite "bare bones" costs to keep the local library afloat, according to librarian Glada Stump.

Stump says the tax costs to the average Calhoun resident is like a one-time purchase of a gallon of milk and a loaf of bread.

Examples of taxes the library levy will incur:

Class II Real Estate, if library levy passes"

$20,000 appraised value will cost $3.36 annually

$40,000 appraised value will cost $6.72 annually

$50,000 appraised value will cost $8.40 annually

$75,000 appraised value will cost $12.80 annually

$100,000 appraised value will cost $16.80 annually

The small library levy failed to pass two years ago by less than one-half of one-percent.

Grace Richards, President of the Library Board, says she is hopeful county residents will come out and support the levy.
