Summer Reading Goal is over 1500 hours!!

The Ohio Library Council recently reported on House Bill 483 with the following recommendations that effect the Public Library Fund. 

The final report includes a total of over $400 million in tax reductions in the following three primary areas:  1) temporary increase in the small business tax deduction from 50% to 75%. This will reduce the PLF an additional $4.8 Million in fiscal year (FY) 15.

2) An acceleration of the personal income tax cuts (from HB 59 enacted last summer). This will reduce the PLF an additional $1.66 Million in FY 15. 3)  An increase in personal income tax exemption amounts. This will reduce the PLF an additional $1.22 
Million in FY 15.

These proposed tax reductions will reduce the PLF by an estimated $7.68 million in FY 15. This means the money we receive from the state will be drastically cut.  The village of Ashley and Oxford township levy that was passed will be coming up for renewal next year and it is vital for us to continue library services to the community.

Story Time

May 8 - Mother's Day
May 15 - Camp Our
May 22 - Beach Party

May 29 - June 19   No Storytime

We have been trying to make some improvements to the library building.  There is a lot of necessary maintenance needed for popular public buildings.  And especially those that are 80+ years old. 

We hope that you won’t be too inconvenienced by the disruption.  We sincerely hope that in the end that library will be a better place to serve you.

The Bookmark Society will be meeting  May 22nd.  They are reading Coming Clean by Kimberly Rae Miller (Maybe to stay in the mood for Spring Cleaning?) 



Requested donations for our Summer reading program:
Gently used or inexpensive various sizes paint brushes (not foam)
Bag of sand
Anyone willing to let us borrow a small wading pool for a program this summer?

Library Love Isn't Nerdy
Ohio gets mocked for many things. This includes having a population of nerds because Ohioans make more library visits per capita than any other state.
But libraries are cool, and Ohio's are particularly cool. They're so cool they even have a Consortium of Ohio Libraries (COOL). Branches in the state are some of the highest ranking in the country and they often get national awards and other recognition for their services and innovation.
 Taken from the MOVOTO.com website: 10 Things only People From Ohio Understand


“Free libraries maintained by the people are cradles of democracy, and their spread can never fail to extend and strengthen the democratic idea, the equality of the citizen and the royalty of man. They are emphatically fruits of the true American ideal.”  
-Andrew Carnegie at the 1903 dedication of the Carnegie  Library in Washington, D.C.

Did you know that we have garden tools that you can check out?
 We also have books on  gardening. 
Let us help you have a great yard this spring!



The Tax helpline folks don’t have enough volunteers this year and so are unable to have help times here in Ashley.  You can still call 2-1-1 and make an appointment for assistance with your tax questions.  There are two locations in Delaware county and one in Marion that can help those who qualify.

The  Summer reading program this year is about science.  We are so excited and can hardly wait.  Plans are already in the works! 

I was recently sorting through some old files and discovered what might be a universal truth.  After about a year of writing newsletters, it is difficult to come up with something new and entertaining!
