Thank you, voters, for your continued support of the library. Your support assures the library can continue to offer storytimes and Summer Read Reading programs, the latest bestsellers and books by emerging new voices in fiction and nonfiction, internet access and online resources, programs for all ages, knowledgeable staff, and more. Without you Wood County District Public Library would be only a shadow of the vibrant, service-oriented, and community-centered library we all love.
See YOU @the Library!
Wood County District Public Library, Pemberville Public Library, and Wayne Public Library all have levies on the ballot next week. Will I be taxed multiple times if all 3 libraries’ levy issue passes?
No. You will not pay multiple taxes. Wood County is the home to 8 separate public libraries, each serving a specific area–defined in a precise way (school districts) by the Ohio Revised Code. Only voters living in a library’s service area may vote on a library’s ballot issue. And, if that levy passes, only the residents within the library’s service area pay the resulting tax.
In the cases of Wayne and Pemberville, only those residents in the Elmwood and Eastwood school districts will be asked to vote on their respective library’s levies next week.
On the other hand, Wood County District Public Library has been designated a county district library by the Ohio Revised Code. Wood County District’s service area includes Bowling Green and the school districts within Wood County currently not being served by another library.
Those school districts are:
Bowling Green City
Patrick Henry Local
Gibsonburg Exempted Village
Anthony Wayne Local
Fostoria City (outside Fostoria city limits)
and Perrysburg Exempted Village (outside Perrysburg city limits).
If you reside in the Wood County portion of one of these school districts, you are in Wood County District Public Library’s service district and will be able to vote for it next Tuesday.
