EPL Seeks to Renew Operating Levy in May

 

On Tuesday, May 7, the Euclid Public Library will ask residents to renew its current 5.6 mill five-year operating levy that supports services and programming for more than 47,000 residents in the City of Euclid.

The operating renewal generates $3.1 million each year and will not increase taxes. On average, the renewal will cost taxpayers $115.85 annually, based on a $75,000 property valuation.

Since 2014, Euclid Public Library has identified new ways to provide patrons with cutting-edge services. EPL expanded its program offerings for adults and families, increased skills and job readiness training through Ohio Means Jobs, and began passport acceptance services in fall 2016. Additionally, in early 2018, EPL launched personal Wi-Fi mobile hotspots check out to library cardholders.

In addition to traditional offerings such as books, internet, and computer access, Euclid Public Library provides early literacy and STEAM programs in community schools and supports Euclid preschools and daycares, and homebound patrons by way of Outreach Services – one of the few remaining libraries in the area to offer the needed service.
