It’s hard to read, but the library’s small (2.53%) portion is that small sliver second from the right.
The McDonald County Library has operated with the same tax levy since the beginning…
Because of the way taxes are apportioned, the percentage of every dollar changes slightly every year.
(Almost every year the library gets an even smaller percentage.)
In 2011, the library gets only 2+1/2 cents out of every dollar.
Think what an amazing return you get for that tiny little portion of each dollar.
Unlike the schools, the library is a public service that everyone can use and enjoy.
As of 2011, we’re now even operating a THIRD library branch without raising your property tax!
(Thanks in large part to the generous efforts of the SWC Library Foundation, a private (non-tax-funded) organization.)
We hope to continue to bring you the very best return on your tax dollar for many years to come!
We’ve just updated the information about how to check your account and/or reserve books online… If you’ve ever wanted to reserve a book OR find out what items are checked out to you, when they are due, fines/overdues, items reserved or waiting to be picked up, etc…
Try these new (and hopefully much simplified) instructions!
The libraries in Pineville and Southwest City each have TWO Special Children’s Computers designed especially for kids ages 3 to 9 years old!
These computers have lots of fun, kid-friendly and educational software titles loaded, and they are NOT connected to the Internet, so they are safe for your kids to explore to their heart’s content.
There are no special forms to fill out, and no logins/passwords required… Your kids can just sit down and start using them immediately!
