The library levy will have another try, this time with the help of the Calhoun County Board of Education. Library Board President Grace Richards asked the board to sponsor the levy, after two failed attempts. The levy has been slightly short of getting the 60% required votes.

The Board voted unanimously to sponsor the cause, which would require a 50% yes vote by Calhoun citzens.

Richards said the library is on shaky ground, trying to survive. They have been asking the taxpayers to pass a $30,000 annual levy, which would be in effect for three years, and would minimally raise taxes for most property owners. She said it would be the cost of "a loaf of bread and a gallon of milk" for most residents.

Denise Ash of the West Virginia Library Commission told Board members "Thirteen county Boards of Education have assisted libraries."

The issue will likely be placed on the ballot this fall.

The Board said the library must assume all expenses of placing the issue on the ballot.
