Your library needs your support

It's budget time, usually not the most fun, but also not bad - usually.

This year is different. The County Administrator, Robert Sivick, did not include an increase in the county budget for YOUR 8 Waushara County libraries. Because bills from libraries in neighboring counties (I'll explain in a minute), increased, your libraries will get a budget cut next year of $5344 split between us.
