Dear Editor:

Annual Budget meeting will be in Orofino as usual. In 2015-16 the budget for Clearwater Memorial Library was $202.162 in 2016-17 it was $201,819 and 2017-18 and 2018-19 it has been $181,415. This coming fiscal year we have asked for $212,000. I might also add that for the last three years we have returned over $10,000 to the district.

Our services have expanded and we will continue to provide new services. We experience many 200+ patron visits per day. Many of you avail yourselves of the Valnet benefits about 1,000 books come in and we send about 1,000 to member libraries each month; our Valnet Overdrive E-Books have increased and Valnet now includes Kanopy.

Stop in and I will be happy to show you the indoor progress of the expansion you have generously supported and built without costing the taxpayer one cent. We are grateful for the turnout and support we received during the recent election and most importantly your daily patronage.

Cleo Castellanos

Director, Clearwater Memorial Public Library
