Director’s Message

T

his November, the Stark County District Library will be on the ballot with a 1.7 mill levy. We hope we can continue to count on our incredibly supportive community to help us provide services to you. The increased need for new technology, the expansion of online services to the population (such as, filing taxes online, applying for jobs, etc.) and continuing costs just to maintain existing facilities and services make it impossible to keep up with what our community needs while at the same time accommodating continual cuts in state funding. We have worked Karen Miller very hard to minimize impact on the community while adjusting Interim Executive Director, Stark County District Library to smaller and smaller revenue from the state, but we will not be able to continue without further support from you, locally. How does the library support our community? In March 2012: ●● In just one month, nearly 10,000 children attended story time programs. ●● The library provided 24,000 people with access to computers and the Internet. ●● Our 7th Annual Opportunities Job Fair attracted hundreds of people to meet with more than 30 employers. We were pleased to hear back from some of the employers who placed 13 employees as a direct result of this fair. ●● 275 adults attended free computer training classes. ●● Over 300,000 books, movies and other items were loaned to our customers. We believe that the library provides essential services to the community by teaching critical early literacy skills to young children, by supporting education, and by providing access to information and technology. We want our community to succeed! We want to continue to help people find information, locate jobs, and learn new skills. And, with your support, we can continue to provide excellent service to our community.
