Letter: Library a good deal for Ada

Have you visited the Ada Public Library recently, followed it on Facebook, or used their user-friendly website? At the library, you and your family have opportunities for free Wi-Fi, free computer usage, free notary service, voter registration, and excellent programs for babies through adults, including book discussions for tweens and adults.

The Ada Public Library is asking the community to support a five-year renewal levy — no new taxes — on the Nov. 2 ballot! The purpose of the 1 mill levy is for current expenses. The levy would see the owner of a $100,000 house paying $2.50 a month, or $30.09 a year. It is projected to raise approximately $98,800 during the first year of collection.
