PAULDING – The Paulding County Carnegie Library Levy Committee-PAC will meet from 5-6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10 at the main library in Paulding, and will be immediately followed by the meeting of the Friends of the Library.
The sole purpose of the levy committee is to advocate a “yes” vote for the library levy. There are many rules and guidelines that must be followed and we have that information to share with you. Activities may include fundraising events, yard sign distribution, newspaper ads, special events, letters to the editor, door-to-door campaigns, etc.
The Board of Trustees of the Paulding County Carnegie Library is responsible for establishing secure funding for Paulding County’s library system, which is celebrating 100 years of library support.
With state funding shrinking, the library levy provides about half of all revenue for the library. There are no new taxes with this levy. It is a renewal levy to run continuously to provide stable funding for future generations. The library system includes the main historic Carnegie library in Paulding; branches in the villages of Antwerp, Oakwood and Payne; and a Bookmobile.
The library is an independent political subdivision and is governed by a board of trustees appointed by the judge of the common pleas court. Current board members are Sue Derck, president; Terry Wehrkamp, vice-president; Corey Walker, secretary; K. Sue Thrasher, Suzanne Rister, Charlene Grant and Ron Etzler.
