To The Daily Sun,
I am writing to ask Gilmanton voters to support the Gilmanton Year-Round Library this year at election time. The request is less than last year by more than $6,000, so there will be no new tax impact.
The library board was able to raise the $18,000 additional funds for this year and $25,000 to go toward the 2015 year keeping the request to $45,000.
The board is very fiscally responsible. The board can apply for grants if they have town financial help. More services and programs are available. E-books are now available for Gilmanton residents.
New families expect to have a library and most come to the library within weeks of moving to town.
School children are now regularly walking over to the library for after school programs and have come to expect the service.
The library is serving the needs of this community in a positive and economical manner.
Consider the facts and do what is right for our community. This request has only a positive impact on all residents. Please support Warrant Article 25 on March 10 when you go to vote.
