Why is this important?

We want our library to represent us all, no matter our background, with books and events that reflect and enrich our existence, and expand our horizons. 
However, we have a Town Council and newly appointed members of the Library Board of Trustees who are attempting to take back funds from the library that should be spent on more library programs and services. 
Instead of using the taxes legally raised to support the Library, the Town Council is unethically redirecting those tax dollars to fund pet projects like new pickleball courts.  
These decisions, combined with bullying and "get on board" demands from Township officials has led Librarian Debbie Maynard to resign after 10 years of dedicated service.
We are also seeing the Library Trustee Board stacked with new members appointed for partisan political reasons, rather than as responsible stewards and advocates of the library’s mission. Instead, they are there to rubber stamp Town Council demands for library money to fund pet projects. 
Our library deserves better, and our community certainly deserves better. We call on the Town Council and the Library Board to make a public commitment to: 
1.     Direct that all library tax money be spent on library programs and services! 
2.     Hire a new librarian who shares Debbie Maynard’s vision, values, and ethics to serve
         the entire community.
